YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

The pastor of a Youngstown church is accused of fondling a 18-year-old man in the rest room of a Boardman restaurant.

Court officials tell 21 News that seventy-three-year-old  James Callozzo of the Nativity of Christ Orthodox Church faces a July 28 pretrial on a charge of sexual imposition.

Callozzo was booked into the jail on Tuesday following his appearance in county court in Boardman.

The alleged victim tells county sheriff's investigators that a man followed him into the bathroom of the restaurant on May 15th and asked him if he could see his private area.

The Boardman 18-year-old says he forced the man away from him after he reached in front of him an fondled his genitals.

The alleged victim took a picture of the suspect when he returned to his table and gave the picture to detectives.

The report was taken by authorities in May, but a warrant for Callozzo's arrest was not issued until last week.

21 News attempted to contact the Nativity of Christ Orthodox Church on Miller Street.  Our calls were not answered.
