Police: Dover senior citizen charged with sexual assault of 12-year-old boy


DOVER — A senior citizen was arrested on a charge of aggravated felonious sexual assault of a 12-year-old boy.

The police department began an investigation after receiving a report on Sept. 7 that 66-year-old John Fenton had sexually assaulted a resident of his home.

Police detectives obtained an arrest warrant charging Fenton with engaging in a pattern of sexual assaults against the victim, who was a 12-year-old boy known to Fenton.

Fenton turned himself into the police on Sept. 26. He was then released on $45,000 bail.

He is scheduled to be arraigned in court on Dec. 2. The name of the victim will not be released because of his young age.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the Dover Police Department at 603-742-4646
