STAMFORD - A janitor at the Stamford YMCA is reportedly facing charges today for allegedly inappropriately touching a 15-year-old boy in the locker room.

The Advocate newspaper reports that 54-year-old Bara Mbengue was charged with fourth-degree sexual assault and felony risk of injury to a child over the weekend.

They say Mbengue then spoke to the boys and allegedly reached over and touched the boy's genitals over his swimsuit.
