A man faces criminal charges after police said he molested a child between 11 and 13 years old in North County.

Steven Keel, 35, of Sauget, IL was charged Friday with four counts of first-degree statutory sodomy.

St. Louis County Police said Keel had sexual intercourse four times with a child between Oct. 1, 2010 and Dec. 31, 2011 in Glasgow Village. The child was between 11 and 13 years old at the time, police said.
