ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KPLR) – The St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office charged a 33-year-old for suspected sodomy of a juvenile.

According to the St. Louis County Police Department, officers were responded to the 7400 block of Hardscrapple Drive in Marlborough on Friday evening for calls of a person barricading themselves inside a residence.

The person in the home, identified as Dustin Traw, eventually exited the home and was taken into police custody.

Police said the juvenile victim told his mother that Traw placed his own mouth on the victim’s genitals. The victim’s mother said she confronted Traw about the accusation and that he admitted to the crime.

Traw allegedly made additional incriminating statements to police while they were at his home, which led to his arrest.

Traw was charged with one count of first-degree statutory sodomy and remains jailed on $100,000 cash-only bond.
