Will County Sheriff Mike Kelley is announcing the arrest of Philip W. Buroff, age 25, formerly of Orland Park, currently residing in Frankfort with acquaintances. Buroff will appear in court at 1:30pm today for a bond hearing on charges of two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse/ages 13 to 18 and two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.
In April 2018, Sheriff's detectives began investigating allegations of sexual misconduct by a Wendy's Restaurant supervisor, Philip Buroff and an under-age female (victim) employee. The victim stated that she and Buroff worked together at the restaurant in Mokena and became friends. Over a year-long period of time the relationship expanded to inappropriate sexual advancements over cellphone texting and a private social media site and eventually turned into engaging in sex.
Sheriff's detectives brought Buroff in for questioning yesterday, 5/7/18, where he made statements implicating himself and stated that he was aware of the victim being 16 years of age. He was arrested and brought to the Adult Detention Facility.
Detectives are asking anyone that may have information about Buroff having any other potential relationships with under-age victims to please call Detective Burket at 727-8574 ext. 4965. Philip Buroff has been a supervisor at several Wendy's restaurants in the areas of Frankfort, Mokena, Manteno, and Matteson. -END-
