Dover Dance Instructor Arrested on Sex Charge

Posted: Jul 06, 2017 1:58 PM Updated:

 

DOVER, Del. - Authorities say a 65-year-old dance instructor accused of sexually abusing one of his students is awaiting extradition from New York to Delaware.

The incident was reported by the 17-year-old victim and his parents on June 26, 2017 and occurred on June 23, 2017, Dover police said. 

According to police, the victim stated that Alexander Boitsov, of Hockessin, Del., took him to a locker room during a dance session. Authorities said that while inside the locker room, the victim was told to undress, and Boitsov then engaged in sexual contact with the victim.

The Dover Police Department obtained an arrest warrant for Boitsov on a single count of second-degree unlawful sexual contact. On June 28, he was arrested in New York City by the U.S. Marshal's Fugitive Task Force at the Ellison School of Ballet.

According to police, Boitsov is known to travel to various dance schools to provide lessons. Detectives are unaware if there are additional victims, but anyone wishing to report incidents that may have occurred in Dover should contact the Dover Police Department at 302-736-7139. 

Any potential victims from outside of Dover should contact their local law enforcement officials.
