The 18-year-old man who launched the sex abuse investigation into Jerry Sandusky wept on the stand today and brought some jurors to tears as he recalled the first time the former Penn State coach allegedly performed oral sex on him, when he was about 12 years old.

“After rubbing, cracking my back and rubbing his hands down back of my shorts, and the blowing on the stomach,” he said, pausing to cry, “he put his mouth on my privates. I spaced, I didn’t know what to do. With all the thoughts running through my head, I just kind of blacked out and didn’t want it to happen. I was froze,” he said.

The man, whom ABC News is identifying only as Victim 1 because he’s an alleged sex-crime victim, reported the alleged sexual abuse to his mother and his high school in 2008, launching a three-year investigation that led to 52 charges of child sex abuse against Sandusky.

The recent high school graduate was the second accuser to testify during the trial, which began Monday in Bellefonte, Pa., 10 miles from Penn State University.
