(KMOV.com) – Authorities are searching for more victims after a suspect was arrested and charged with sodomy and child molestation on June 4.

Robert Oberfeld, 66, from the 5600 block of Louisiana was issued warrants for two counts of statutory sodomy and one count of child molestation involving a boy who was under the age of 14 at the time.

"He would go into the bathroom with the child and various sex acts would occur," said Assistant City Circuit Attorney Neil Miller. "We want to know if the suspect had contact with any other children. If so, we want to hear from them."

Police say the incidents happened between 2001 and 2004 in the city of St. Louis.

Investigators believe there may be more victims and encourage anyone who has been victimized by Oberfeld to call (314)444-5474.
