Strong Hospital has a significant police presence during a search for a man from Livingston County



Rochester, New York – On Saturday, Patrick J. Steinmetz was a patient at Strong Hospital.

He was charged with three counts of felonies for criminal sex acts, aggravated patronizing a kid for prostitution, encouraging an obscene sexual performance by a child, and using a child in a sexual performance after his arrest in Livingston County at the beginning of April.

This came after an inquiry into claims that Steinmetz had molested a youngster under the age of seventeen sexually.

After being placed under arrest, he soon had a health problem and was sent to Strong Memorial Hospital.

A court order resulted in Steinmetz’s release from the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office after he spent a week in the hospital. He left the hospital on foot the following day.

The sheriff’s office notified the court due to the seriousness of the charges against Steinmetz, and a warrant was issued for his return to detention without bond.

On Saturday night, police investigated the hospital’s grounds, but Steinmetz had vanished.

He was subsequently located at a house in the City of Rochester early on Sunday morning, and he was taken into jail without any problems.
