Convicted sex offender accused of groping 11yo, ComFest-goer makes tackle

A convicted sex offender has been charged with groping an 11-year-old boy at ComFest.

The victim was walking around Goodale park with his family when a man passed by and grabbed his groin.

The victim’s sister screamed and his parents took off after the suspect.


The commotion caught the attention of one festival-goer who was able to tackle the suspect and hold him until police arrived, reports 10TV.

Todd Robert Gavorcik, 36, has been charged with one count of Gross Sexual Imposition.

10TV reports Gavorcik is a registered sex offender and was convicted of Gross Sexual Imposition, Attempted Gross Sexual Imposition and Illegal Use of Minor in Nudity Oriented Material back in 2008.
