Man jailed Sunday on sex charge

FOSTORIA – A Fostoria man was incarcerated Sunday after being charged with unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.

Anthony I. Batz, 24, was arrested on the fourth-degree felony charge, according to Fostoria Police Department.

Capt. Patrick Brooks said the victim is a 14-year-old girl, and she and Batz knew each other. Her family is filing for a civil protection order, he said.

“(Batz) is in custody,” he said.

Brooks said Batz was being held in Fostoria’s city jail Sunday evening, and Brooks hoped his bond would be set by noon today. Batz then will be transferred to Seneca County Jail and will be arraigned by video Tuesday, he said.

The incident remained under investigation Sunday evening.
