Restaurant supervisor charged with sexually assaulting teen
JOLIET — Philip W. Buroff, a Wendy’s restaurant supervisor, has been charged with aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a victim between the ages of 13 and 18 and aggravated criminal sexual abuse.
The 25-year-old Buroff has been a supervisor at Wendy’s locations in Manteno, Frankfort, Mokena and Matteson.
According to a Will County Sheriff’s release, Buroff was arrested Monday after he made statements to investigators implicating himself and stated that he was aware of the victim being 16 years of age.
The investigation into the allegations began last month.

Over a year-long period, the relationship grew to inappropriate sexual advancements over cellphone texting and a private social media site and eventually turned into engaging in sex.
Investigators are asking anyone that may have information about Buroff having any other potential relationships with underage victims to call 727-8574 ext. 4965.
