Once again it appears that Snapchat is the mobile messaging app preferred by predators who are either teachers or youth athletic coaches. For example we have 18-year-old Marcus Stroud of Nyack, New York. He’s been charged with alleged criminal sex acts against a teenage boy that he became acquainted with through a wrestling program where Stroud is a volunteer coach. Stroud allegedly used Snapchat to groom his victim. Police have stated that Stroud has worked in wresting programs in Rockland and Westchester Counties in New York and Bergen County in New Jersey and may have other victims…

If you have additional information about this case or are aware of a possible victim please call the Clarkstown Juvenile Aid Bureau at 845-639-5835, the Tips Line at 1-877-639-6233 or your local police department. The investigation is being conducted by the Clarkstown Juvenile Aid Bureau.

Even in today’s world controlled by social media I am still of the belief that it is highly inappropriate for teachers or coaches to communicate with kids in manners that circumvent their parents.
