Man Accused of Molesting 6-Year-Old Boy

Posted:

Scottsdale police say 32-year-old Ali Chitsaz molested a 6-year-old boy from July to September of this year.

The child and the man were known to each other.

According to court paperwork, the boy said Chitsaz engaged in sex acts with him. The boy said Chitsaz told him not to tell his mother about what they were doing.

Chitsaz also allegedly showed the boy child pornography.

Investigators said during a search warrant of Chitsaz's home, evidence was found supporting the accusations.

A forensic exam was performed and the examiner found bruises which were consistent with the child's report.

Chitsaz was taken into custody on Monday and he is being held without bond. He was booked for multiple counts of child molestation and one count of transmitting obscene material to a minor.

Chitsaz is a mentor for the Big Brothers Big Sisters club, and when they learned of his arrest, he was terminated.

Police say there could be more victims. If you feel your child may have been one, call the Scottsdale police.

TIPLINE: 480-312-5000

Statement by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arizona

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arizona is aware of the arrest of Ali Chitsaz. Upon learning of the arrest, we immediately informed the parents of the child he mentored and the volunteer's association with our organization has been terminated. While we have no reason to believe any child associated with our agency has been victimized, we are alarmed, outraged and saddened by accounts of any child being abused or harmed. We will continue to work proactively with law enforcement authorities throughout their investigation, and feel it would be inappropriate to offer any details or speculate about the case.

Our organization makes child safety our priority. We have zero tolerance for abuse. Our volunteers and staff undergo thorough screening and background checks and we provide ongoing professional support for our children and families. We remain committed to improving children's odds for overcoming adversity, succeeding in school, breaking negative cycles and having higher self-esteem and aspirations. Safety and security are the foundation of the service we provide. The integrity of our program is extremely important and to achieve the highest quality standards possible, we work to constantly review and strengthen our screening and background check systems as new best practices in the industry emerge.

President and CEO

    Heavily armed police officers descended on a home in Long Beach, Long Island, Tuesday afternoon thinking they might find a grisly murder scene. Instead they found a terrified woman who had no clue what they were talking about and her teenaged son playing video games. "We received a phone call from a gentleman who stated he had just shot his mother and his brother," Long Beach Police Commissioner Michael Tangney said. "Unfortunately, this is a terrible national problem for law enforcement."

    An NYPD plan intended to better connect with the community seems to have backfired a bit. The police department asked its twitter followers to share pictures of themselves with New York City police officers using the hashtag "myNYPD." Some did share nice pictures, but others not so much.Some of the first pictures posted showed regular citizens standing with very friendly looking police officers.
