It is being reported that a man, Nicholas Groth, 20, of Oak Creek, Wisconsin, was arrested Thursday night, after it was discovered he had touched three young boys inappropriately at the Pop Century Resort. Groth is a boy’s baseball coach with Rally Baseball amd they were in town for Disney’s International Salute to Baseball Tournament.
The incident took place at the resort pool at Disney’s Pop Century Resort. Apparently some children were at the pool throwing a ball with Groth when he started grabbing the boy’s butts, one of the boy then asked him to please stop. At one point Groth asked two of the boys “what they were talking about and asked if they were going to tell on him.”
Groth was arrested after being spotted at ESPN Wide World of Sports field where several children pointed him out as the man who was “he was acting weird and touching our butts”. The victims are 7, 12 and 13 years old and may or may not have been on his baseball team.
One of the arrested investigators claims Groth did admit to the incident and said he was sorry for doing it, but that it was not his personality. The investigator wrote:
“During the interview, Groth appeared to be in a mental struggle. He didn’t answer questions regarding if he touched the children’s buttocks in the pool with direct answers, but rather took some time to reply. His responses disturbed me, and I asked if he was on medicine or if he had mental illness.”
Groth is being held on no bond at the Orange County Jail on five counts of lewd and lascivious molestation, court records show.
