The boy came forward and told police that Solomon had been playing a series of games with his pecker that Solomon “The Claw” and “The Wedgie Bush.”
The boy said one incident happened in April during a sleepover at Solomon’s house and another happened during a car ride. During the sleepover, the victim said Solomon molested him about five to eight times on separate occasions.
When he finally told Solomon that he wasn’t comfortable with him grabbing his junk, Solomon told him not to tell anyone or he would break the “bro code.” The boy told his mother and she pulled him out of the baseball camp and confronted the suspect. I couldn’t find any details regarding this confrontation or why police were not called at that time.
Deputies said it wasn’t until the news leaked out that some of the victim’s former teammates told him that they too were molested by Solomon. When more parents became aware of the allegations, they confronted Solomon and then called police.
Solomon was then arrested at his home and placed inside the Broward County Jail without bond. Now here is where the story takes a sick turn… this isn’t the first time Solomon has been accused of molesting young boys he coached.
In 2000, he was arrested while working as a coach and a physical education teacher at Hialeah Gardens Elementary School. He was accused of molesting an 11-year-old autistic student at the school and two boys under the age of 14 who played baseball at the Miami Shores Village Recreation Center. The charges were eventually dropped after one of the boys recanted his story.
Parents would rally around Solomon’s and raised more than $30,000 for his legal fees. I would love to hear from some of those parents now, as well as the parents of the alleged victims.
After he was cleared of the charges, Solomon stated, “I feel relieved and I just know it was a matter of time, (and) justice prevailed I guess. Kids know what to say and when to say it to get them out of whatever they need to get out of, and you just got to look out for number one.”
Police believe more victims will come forward, and are asking anyone with information about Solomon to contact the Sheriff’s Special Victims Unit at 954-321-4240 or Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at 954-493-8477.
