WARMINSTER, Pa. — Five men have been arrested, charged with a variety of sexual offenses involving an underage boy in Bucks County.
The alleged abuse started in 2009, when the victim was 9 years old, the Pennsylvania attorney general said. The victim was repeatedly sexually abused by at least four men.
According to court documents, the victim told investigators that David Parker, 38, of Stroudsburg would take him to a home where a group of men would dress up as animals known as “Furries.”
The victim said another man, Kenneth C. Fenske, 57, of Quakertown, would dress up as a red fox called “Lupine” and would take him upstairs and sexually abuse him.
The alleged abuse occurred multiple times and on different dates.
Five suspects have been arrested and charged with a variety of sexual offenses, the attorney general said
Fenske was charged with multiple counts of child rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, and unlawful contact with a minor. Fenske was arraigned in Bucks County and was locked up on $750,000 bail.

The victim is now in foster care, the attorney general said.
“Our investigation is not done, and it is likely there will be more arrests. We believe it is likely there could be more victims out there from this ring of abuse. We want to help them and protect them from any further abuse,” Attorney General Josh Shapiro said. “We’re seeking the public’s help today and asking people to come forward and speak with our Office or the Bucks DA’s Office if they know anything.”
