Philadelphia Police Special Victims Unit investigators searched for a man with an apparent foot fetish who they say targeted a boy at a popular Philadelphia skate park.
The young skater told investigators that an unknown middle-aged man – with some acne or pockmarks on his face who wore a black T-shirt and Army-style green fatigue pants – approached him as he skated at Payne’s Park near the Schuylkill River Trail and Eakins Oval around 7 p.m. on May 10.
The man offered to buy the 11-year-old a soda if the boy allowed the man to photograph his feet, said police. The man then photographed the boy’s feet.

Investigators asked anyone with information on the incident to contact Philadelphia Police.
