A man who used to teach in a central Pennsylvania school district and has since volunteered to teach boater safety classes for the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission is charged with luring teenage boys to his boat and sexually assaulting him.

Allegheny County police filed involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and other charges against 61-year-old John Curtioff, of Etna. Online court records don't list an attorney for Curtioff who remained jailed Friday.

Police say Curtioff taught at the Upper Adams School District in Adams County until 2000. One of his former students there is charged with molesting the same two teens, who police say were brought to Allegheny County and molested by Curtioff.

Police announced the charges at a news conference Friday because they want to know whether Curtioff lured any other teens aboard his boat for similar purposes.
