CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - A St. Louis man is accused of sexually attacking a girl younger than 12 years old while he was infected with HIV.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch ( reports that 25-year-old Richard Jones III is charged with statutory sodomy and exposing another to HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

Police in the St. Louis suburb of Florissant allege Jones abused the girl in June and did so knowing he was HIV-infected.

It was not immediately clear if the girl has tested positive for HIV.

Online court records don’t show whether Jones has an attorney.
