Tiverton fireworks stand owner charged with felony enticement


TIVERTON — A 48-year old Acushnet man was charged at 11:33 a.m. on Friday, August 2, with felony enticement (first offense) and assault involving a 14-year-old Tiverton boy.

Tiverton Police Captain Patrick Jones said Richard Gerard Langlois, owner and operator of a fireworks stand at 36 Main Road in Tiverton, allegedly and on three separate occasions, enticed the boy into a bathroom at the stand and engaged in sexually inappropriate acts with him.

Captain Jones said that on July 25 a Fall River pediatrician, the boy's doctor, notified police of the allegations the boy had confided to him.

Mr. Langlois was arraigned by a justice of the peace, and the case has been referred to the Attorney General for further action.
