(KMOV) – An apartment complex near a recreation center in St. Charles County is home to 17 of convicted sex offenders.
The sheriff’s department admits that’s an unusually high number, and it has one mother on edge.
Kim Brozistowski admits she's a bit over protective with her son. But when she checked the state's sex offender list to see who lived nearby - she says she was shocked.
The apartments sit right behind Swing-a-Round Fun Town, a family recreation center that’s been around for more than 20 years.
The recreation center owner says there are security cameras in place, and there have never been any problems.
Of the 17 sex offenders who live in the apartment complex, 12 have assaulted people under the age of 18. Three of them assaulted children under the age of five.
Three phone calls to management at the complex have not been returned as of 5 p.m. on Monday.
The St. Charles County sheriff's department tracks all 328 offenders in the county. They say they can't explain how so many ended up in one complex.
They say whether you live next to a sex offender or not, you need to keep close watch on your kids.
The Remington apartment complex is in the 3500 block of Veterans Parkway.
