Man charged with videotaping boys at YMCAs now accused of taping boy at Mariucci

The Coon Rapids man charged earlier this week with videotaping boys with a wristwatch camera while they were changing their clothes at north metro YMCA locations is now accused of videotaping a boy urinating at Mariucci Arena at the University of Minnesota, Fox 9 reports.

Robert Dennis Minor, 53, has been charged with felony of interference with privacy after prosecutors said he videotaped a boy age 8 to 12 years old at a Mariucci Arena urinal trough during a hockey game on Dec. 31, 2011.

According to Fox 9, police said Minor was familiar with Mariucci because he worked at hockey games there for 13 years.

Minor was accused earlier this week of videotaping boys at YMCAs, after authorities launched an investigation when a 12-year-old boy told his parents that a man held a watch over the side of a bathroom stall while the boy was changing clothes.

When investigators searched the home Minor shares with his parents, they found the watch with video and photo capabilities, along with a computer containing images of several young boys changing clothes at YMCA facilities in Andover and Coon Rapids, authorities said.

According to KARE 11, thousands of videos and still images of boys engaging in sexual acts were also found on computer hard drives by investigators.
