Man, 53, accused of videotaping kids at Minn. YMCA


ANDOVER, Minn. (AP) -- A 53-year-old Coon Rapids man is accused of videotaping and taking photographs of boys at a Twin Cities YMCA.

Anoka County sheriff's officials say a 12-year-old boy told his parents last month that a man held a watch over a partition as the boy was getting dressed in the Andover YMCA.

Authorities say the boy identified the suspect from video surveillance inside the health club.

Officers executed a search warrant at the suspect's home Saturday and found a wrist watch that can take digital video and photos near a computer. A separate search of the computer found numerous files of boys undressing at the Andover and Coon Rapids YMCAs and at least one other athletic facility.

The suspect was arrested and is in jail. Charges have not been filed.
