Teen in custody after committing lewd act on 71-year-old woman, police say

Tipster helps identify 15-year-old


BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. – A Boynton Beach teen was arrested Monday morning after police said he confessed to committing the lewd act on a 71-year-old woman.

An anonymous tipster helped police identify Duverson Lorissaint, 15, police said.

The tipster had seen a forensic sketch of Lorissaint that was released to the media over the weekend.

In addition to committing the lewd act, Lorissaint,  also confessed to committing the lewd act in front of a woman sunbathing at the Carriage Gate community pool on Dec. 29, police said.

According to a police report, a woman saw Lorissaint masturbating in her direction. 

The victim then screamed and threatened  to call the police, at which point the teen ejaculated and then fled on foot, a police report said. 

Lorissaint also confessed to breaking into a house in the same neighborhood in April and groping a resident there, police said. 

A police report states that in the April case, a woman was sitting in her living room, talking on the phone, when she felt a "presence behind her." She then felt a hand on her right shoulder grab her. 

That's when the woman saw the teen standing behind her, the report said. The woman screamed and chased, but could not keep up. 

Lorissaint was arrested on charges of lewd and lascivious in the presence of an elderly person, burglary to an occupied dwelling, and burglary with a battery.

He was taken to a juvenile assessment center.
