DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (KYW Newsradio) — Three men have been arrested in Bucks County on unrelated child sexual assault charges, and the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office says there’s reason to believe there may be more victims.
Two of the men — 57-year-old Louis Aiello of Rumpf Avenue in Penndel Borough, and 60-year-old David Hofmann of Newportville Road in Bristol Township — are accused of abusing the same child over different time periods.
District Attorney Matt Weintraub says Hofmann and Aiello were both friends of the accuser’s family.
“We don’t know of any known association between the two, which is something we will look to explore further as we continue our investigation. So our belief right now is that they did not know each other,” he said.
Hofmann is accused of abusing the boy from 1995 until 2007, when the victim was five until he was 17.
Aiello is accused of abusing that boy from 2001, when the boy was 11 or 12, through 2007.
Aiello is also accused of assaulting another boy from 2008 through 2010, starting when that boy was 14. Investigators say Aiello met that boy while working as a DJ.
A third man, John Evans of Lilac Lane in Tullytown, is accused of sexually assaulting a boy in his foster care during the coronavirus shutdown.
“This also put Evans out of work and essentially turned this 16-year-old boy into his captive,” Weintraub said.
Weintraub says Evans was a bus driver in Pennsbury and Bristol Township school districts, and was also involved with youth sports, though Weintraub couldn’t say where or when specifically.
“Essentially, what we’re asking is for your help. If any of you are victims and are ready to come forward, we’re ready to help you seek justice,” Weintraub said.
The boy who accused Hofmann and Aiello says he saw another boy who was also abused, but doesn’t know his name.
In a recorded phone call, prosecutors say Hoffman also mentions other boys.
