North Tonwanda man accused of repeat child molesting

A 63-year-old North Tonawanda man was arrested Tuesday by City of Tonawanda Police following an investigation of child molesting involving a 10-year-old City of Tonawanda boy. Philip M. Kohler of Sweeney Street, faces felony and misdemeanor proceedings in Tonawanda City Court over the next few weeks for allegedly molesting the boy for about the last six months. As a result of a police investigation launched in April, Kohler was charged with second-degree sexual misconduct against a child, endangering the welfare of a child and second-degree criminal contempt for allegedly violating an earlier court order warning Kohler to not contact any juveniles.
