Manahawkin resident charged for lewd behavior in front of school children
A man living in the Ocean Acres section of Manahawkin was arrested and is being charged for allegedly exposing himself as neighborhood children waited for the bus to school.
Stafford Township Police said that they received a report from the school district who said that a man had been standing in his doorway, which was in plain view of the road, and engaged in a number of lewd and inappropriate acts while the bus was stopped in front of his home as children were boarding the school bus.
This took place on October 20.
Police showed up the next morning, around 7:25 am, to Spar Road and saw 66-year old Anthony Buonavolonta again standing in his doorway engaging in this lewd behavior.
Detectives then placed Buonavolonta under arrest.
He was brought to Stafford Police headquarters and charged for the behavior that occurred on four separate incidents between October 13 and October 21.
Police said that Buonavolonta was later released on his own recognizance pending a future court appearance in Ocean County Superior Court.
As the investigation continues and a court date is pending, Stafford Police ask anyone with any information to contact Detective Russell Dunfee at 609-597-1189 extension 8444 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
