A Lansdale man is sitting in prison, waiting for extradition to Florida to answer a charge of felony video voyeurism of a child under the age of 16, for allegedly photographing an 8-year-old boy in a bathroom stall at Disney’s Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World.

Joseph Cionzynski, 59, of the 300 block of Perkiomen Avenue, was taken into custody Wednesday by Lansdale Police, a day after Orange County Sheriff’s issued an arrest warrant, according to The Reporter. He was arraigned before District Judge Harold Borek on Wednesday.

According to authorities, Cionzynski allegedly took cell phone photos of the boy from under a partition from an adjacent stall.

The boy could only identify the man by his shoes, police said. When the boy ran out to his mother and told her of the alleged perversion, they identified Cionzynski as the alleged voyeur by his shoes, police said.

The mother confronted Cionzynski, who was escorted out of the bathroom by Animal Kingdom security, police said.

Cionzynski told police the incident was a “misunderstanding” and he was willing to cooperate with them, police said.

While authorities did not find the photos immediately on Cionzynski’s phone, a further investigation did locate the alleged photos, police said. Initially, police allegedly found two photos of male genitalia on Cionzynski’s phone.

Cionzynski, who told authorities he is a Boy Scout leader, is banned from any Walt Disney property, according to The Reporter.

It is interesting how People in law enforcement fancy themselves psychologist and sociologists. Most men who molest little boys are actually heterosexual. They often have sexual attraction to women, and frequently are married with children, and have no desire to have sex with an adult male. Not that it matters, but there is no evidence that the accused is gay. The male genitalia on his phone could very well be his own. The claims that gays represent a "high" percentage of pedophiles is base on anecdotal experiences and is complete contrary to scientific studies done on this issue.

Jake Mooney - Please get lost. You call yourself a man of common sense while you clearly need a good dose of it yourself. Stop trying to claim as fact the opinions you formed while you were fetching coffee for the bigwigs at your "large (yet unnamed) law enforcement agency" for 30 years. As for Mr. Cionzynski - he'll have a fun time in jail. There's a reason that most pedophiles are not placed in general population.
