NYPD: BX man in custody for sexual abuse

A Bronx man accused of forcibly touching boys in Edenwald is now in custody.



Authorities say 37-year-old Greg Boyden apparently sent a 13-year-old boy an explicit photo of himself over text messages and offered him money for sex.



Boyden lives only blocks away from Seton Falls Park where three previous sexual abuse incidents occurred, dating back to early August.



Police say Boyden is facing several charges, including unlawful imprisonment, sexual abuse and forcible touching of boys ages 12 to 15.



Police are not releasing many details of the phone conversation that got Boyden arrested or the prior incidents in the park.



Boyden is expected to be arraigned later today.
