Man to be arraigned on sex charges involving boy, 14

A 44-year-old Yonkers man has been accused of sodomizing a 14-year-old boy in his home in December 2007.

Patrick Martens, who lives on Kincaid Drive, will be arraigned in Yonkers City Court today on a felony charge of second-degree criminal sexual act for having sex with the boy, who is 17 now.

He also faces a misdemeanor charge of fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon for allegedly having a Glock 9mm semi-automatic handgun at his home on Monday, according to the criminal complaint.

Martens, a former guard at Co-Op City in the Bronx, is an ex-instructor with the Yonkers Fife and Drum Band, which is made up of city firefighters but not run by the department. Yonkers Fire Commissioner Tony Pagano said Martens has not taught the Yonkers band for the past two years.
