A part-time staff aide who worked with the varsity basketball team at Paul Laurence Dunbar High School has been charged with twice sexually assaulting a 14-year-old boy after offering him a ride home, Baltimore police reported.

Police said the boy does not attend Dunbar, but that one of the alleged attacks took place at the school in East Baltimore.

Edward "Zeke" Mazyck, 28, of the 1500 block of E. 33rd St. was arrested Thursday and charged with two counts each of sodomy, kidnapping, perverted sex practice and battery, said Doug Price, a city police spokesman. Mr. Mazyck helped the basketball coaches for the past two seasons.

The charges stem from a claim by a 14-year-old boy who said Mr. Mazyck offered him a ride home on May 20, Mr. Price said. The boy said he was driven "to a secluded spot," Mr. Price said.

Police said the victim reported that Mr. Mazyck sexually assaulted him there, then drove him Dunbar and sexually assaulted him again, Mr. Price said.

Mr. Mazyck was being held in lieu of $25,000 bond last night at the Baltimore City Detention Center.

A school department spokesman, said Mr. Mazyck was a part-time staff aide and has been suspended without pay pending the outcome of the investigation.
