Lakewood man faces charges in sexual-abuse incident

MAYVILLE – The Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office has charged a 68-year-old Lakewood man following an investigation into a reported sexual-abuse incident apparently involving a child in the Town of Mina.

Deputies served the arrest warrant Thursday on Ellis F. Delahoy, at his residence on Jones Street in Lakewood. He faces charges of first-degree sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child, according to sheriff’s officials.

The sheriff’s office received the original complaint from Child Protective Services.

Following his arraignment in Town of Mina Court, Delahoy was sent to the Chautauqua County Jail without bail.
