A St. Louis man is wanted on charges of incest for abusing a young girl, authorities say.

The Circuit Attorney on Monday issued a warrant for Milton Henry Patrick Jr., accusing the 36-year-old of victimizing the child repeatedly. The abuse began when the girl, a relative of Patrick, was just nine years old, according to court records.

As of late Tuesday afternoon, Patrick was not in custody.

The majority of the abuse allegedly took place during a five-month period between December 2015 and April 2016 while Patrick was living in the 1400 block of Mallinckrodt Street, in north city's Hyde Park neighborhood. His most recent address is in the 3800 block of Vest Avenue in the same neighborhood.

Patrick is facing fourteen felonies — seven counts of incest, six of statutory sodomy and one count statutory rape. He also has a case pending on a charge of receiving stolen property.
