University City — A man who once volunteered for a youth program at a synagogue in University City has been charged with sexual misconduct with a child.

Arrested Friday was David Kramer, 46, of the 1100 block of Briscoe Place in University City.

University City Police Capt. Michael Ransom said today that Kramer had been transferred to the St. Louis County Jail late Friday.

The Missouri Division of Family Services alerted police late last month to a hot-line tip. The tip alleged that sometime last winter, Kramer had committed the misconduct in his apartment with a boy under age 14, Ransom said.

Kramer's apartment sits close by Nusach Hari B'Nai Zion Synagogue on Olive Boulevard. There, Kramer once volunteered for a single program that works with youths ages 12 to 16, said Rabbi Ze'ev Smason. Kramer was neither an employee nor a member of the synagogue, Smason said.
