Woman arrested for groping teen boys at pool

NEWARK, Del. - July 29, 2010

The incident happened on Sunday at Dickey Park Pool on Madison Drive.

Investigators say 34-year-old Joy Verucci called police to say she was being harassed by neighbors for touching the boys at the pool.

As it turns out, Verucci herself was arrested.

Police say the boys, ages 13, 15, 16 and 17, were dunking each other in the water, and Verucci would get involved. However, during this horseplay, police say Verucci touched the genitals of one boy through the outside of his swimsuit, and the buttocks of a second boy.

Police say she also inappropriately touched the swim shorts of the other two boys.

Verucci was released on $3,500 unsecured bond and issued a no contact order with the victims and the pool.
