(BEDFORD) - 69-year-old Raymond Spicer of Bedford was arrested on a warrant accusing him of inappropriately touching a 14-year-old boy and his older sister on multiple occasions.

According to a probable cause affidavit, on July 24, a 14-year-old boy called his father to pick him up from Spicer's home. The father told police the son was very upset and said that Spicer had touched him.

When an officer talked with the victim, the boy and his sister had been at Spicer's home for dinner and a Bible study. When they arrived, the boy sat on Spicer's lap and Spicer started rubbing the boy's back.

The boy then went outside where his sister was until they were called inside for dinner.

The boy's sister and Spicer's wife went upstairs for a Bible study while the boy went to take a nap. He told police that "while lying on the couch, Spicer sat down next to him and started rubbing his back and then lower until his hands were down the boy's pants. The boy attempted to get Spicer to stop, but Spicer said "It's Ok" and continued to fondle the boy.

The 14-year-old went upstairs to get his sister's attention, but couldn't, so he called his father. The boy told police this type of incident occurred multiple times during the past two years.

The first incident happened in 2012 when Spicer and the boy were lying down by a fireplace. Spicer instructed the victim to put his hand down Spicer's pants. Similar incidents occurred at least two more times.

Officers spoke with the victim's sister who said Spicer also touched her in 2010 when she was 14 years old. She told police she was lying with Spicer in a hammock at his home. Spicer started rubbing her back, continuously rubbing lower and lower. The sister said Spicer then started rubbing her thigh, up into her skirt, and touched her through her panties.

The sister told Spicer to stop and pushed his hand away, but Spicer continued to fondle her.

A detective also spoke with Spicer's wife, who said the 14-year-old boy always looked up to Spicer and that he loved Spicer. She said the boy would not accuse Spicer of anything unless it was true, the court document states. She said she kicked Spicer out of the home when the boy's father told her of the incidents.
