ST. LOUIS — A St. Louis County man faces charges of molesting a 16-year-old boy in a YMCA sauna last month.
The suspect is 46-year-old Michael Louis Patzius of Wildwood. He was charged Wednesday with three counts of second-degree statutory sodomy and one count of second-degree sexual misconduct by indecent exposure.
Authorities say Patzius sat next to the boy in the sauna of a St. Louis YMCA and began touching him inappropriately.
The victim told his parents and the parents contacted the YMCA and police.
Patzius is free on $150,000 bond.
