Detectives are asking any additional victims to come forward

An Edgewater man has just been arrested after making sexual advances on two child victims, and MPs are calling on anyone who has been through something similar to come forward.

Gregory Seifert, 51 (DOB 1/20/1971), is charged with 4 counts of lewd or lascivious conduct, 2 counts of aiding in the delinquency of a minor, and 2 counts of showing obscene material to a minor.

In a case first reported last week, cellphone records show Seifert sent a 13-year-old girl a picture of his penis, offered her money for a photo of his feet and proposed to buy him and his friends alcohol and vape pens.

In a second case reported this week, a 15-year-old girl said Seifert made several sexual advances to her, offered her money and provided alcohol to her and her friends. The victim also discovered a hidden camera placed in his bedroom by Seifert when he was at home.

Seifert offered both victims money in exchange for witnessing or witnessing sexual acts with him.

Seifert will be transported to Volusia County Jail without bond.

Anyone with information about a similar case is asked to contact the Volusia Sheriff’s Office Child Exploitation Unit at 386-254-1537. You can also always call the 24/7 non-emergency line at 386-248-1777 or dial 911 in an emergency.
