In our view, being a pedophile is bad enough, but using attributes which are known to attract kids is worse. So we are really rooting for the police in this one and hope that anyone having seen the next perv contacts them immediately.
Durham police are actively looking for Mr Isam Fathee Mohamed Rahmah, 51 years old, who used an ice-cream truck to lure young boys inside his vehicle so he could sexually assault them.
A woman, who wishes to remain anonymous to protect her son, came forward with the first charges against Mr Rahmah. She said on Wednesday her 9 year old son found the courage to tell her what happened to him on October 22.
"The guy in the ice cream truck told him he could get in the van and help him give out ice cream to the kids in the neighborhood," said the mother, "He unlocked the door and invited my son on. When he got on, he locked the doors back and told him to go stand in the corner, grabbed him by the shoulders."
According to the woman, the man then touched him inappropriately. He told the man to stop and said the man gave him a free ice cream and let him go.
The mother, her husband and her brother then confronted the driver.
"His initial response was 'no I didn't do anything, I didn't do anything', then it went from 'I didn't do anything' to 'I don't know what you're talking about. ' "
The ice-cream truck is apparently a red Ford Van with numerous pictures of popsicles decorated on the side and back, with NC license plate PCZ-3617.
Mr Rahmah is charged with felony first-degree kidnapping and indecent liberties with a child. Additional charges may be forthcoming.
