Alfred Balcuns – Repeat Sex Offender – Child Molester

Alfred Balcuns, 51, of Montauk was arrested on Friday, May 22, at 3:28 p.m. at 15 Fenwick Place in Montauk and charged with sexual abuse in the first degree for alleged sexual contact with a child under 11, a felony, and endangering the welfare of a child under 17, a misdemeanor.

The incident occurred at Hither Hills Beach in Montauk on Saturday, May 16, East Hampton Town Police said. The father of the victim, a boy under the age of 11, was nearby but unaware of the contact between Mr. Balcuns and his son, Detective Sergeant Chris Anderson said. The boy told his parents what had happened soon after it occurred and the boy’s father reported the incident to police on Sunday, May 17, Det. Sgt. Anderson said. The victim was not related to Mr. Balcuns, according to police.

Police said they interviewed the child and his parents and submitted all documents related to the investigation to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office of domestic violence and child abuse, which then presented the evidence to a grand jury, which indicted Mr. Balcuns.

“The testimony of the victim was pivotal in the proceedings against him,” Det. Sgt. Anderson said.

On Friday, May 22, East Hampton Town Police received the warrant and arrested Mr. Balcuns, a landscaper, while he was at work. He was turned over to Suffolk County Police and held in county jail when he could not post bail.

Mr. Balcuns was previously convicted of sexual abuse in the first degree on March 13, 2001, according to the National Sex Offender Registry.
