Fake Md. cop molested boy: Police

A Baltimore man is accused of impersonating a police officer in order to molest a 14-year-old boy.

Forty-seven-year-old Mark Citro was charged Thursday with offenses including sexual abuse of a minor and sexual solicitation of a minor.

City police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says Citro identified himself as a police officer to gain the trust of a family and told them he was working on a task force to put child predators behind bars.

He says Citro eventually persuaded the teenager's mother to allow her son to sleep over at his house. That's when he allegedly molested the boy.

Police are concerned there may be other victims, in part because he volunteered at the Friendship Academy of Engineering and Technology, a school near his northeast Baltimore home.
