The charges were filed late Friday. According to court records, police said Mr. Elmer on Thursday entered a restroom with a 13-year-old boy, where he allegedly pulled down the boy’s pants and fondled him. Records show the boy has a mental or physical condition that would impair his ability to respond and that the defendant likely would have known this. Mr. Elmer also is charged with inducing panic for running and hiding from police in the hospital and with vandalism for later kicking out and destroying a hospital window in an attempt to flee. Police from both the hospital system and Toledo police were on scene.

A resident of Tikrit, Ahmed Jassim, said by telephone that clashes were taking place around Speicher on Saturday, but the gunmen are outside the camp. The center of Tikrit is still under insurgent control, and is being shelled by the Iraqi military, he said.
