Manasquan physical therapist charged with groping employees
A Manasquan-based physical therapist has been arrested and charged for illegal sexual contact with two former employees, announced Monmouth County Prosecutor Chris Gramiccioni.
Lukas I. DeLorenzo, 35, of Neptune Township, is charged with fourth degree Sexual Contact for allegedly inappropriately sexual touching of both victims over a period of time beginning around September 2019.
Investigators say DeLorenzo would disguise what he was doing as teaching treatment methods but while doing so he would inappropriately touch and grope these employees, both at his office in Manasquan and in another location in Brielle.
The investigation into the allegations is being conducted jointly by the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office Special Victim’s Bureau, Manasquan Police Department, and Brielle Police Department.
If convicted of Sexual Contact, DeLorenzo faces a sentence on each count of up to 18 months in state prison.
Investigators are seeking additional information about DeLorenzo’s activities and are concerned about the potential for additional victims.
Anyone with additional information is urged to call MCPO Detective Jose Rodriguez at 732-431-7160, extension 7172 or Detective Kenneth Hamill of the Manasquan Police Department at 732-223-1000, extension 226.
