MONTGOMERY, Ill. — A haunted house worker has been charged after being accused of saying inappropriate comments and touching patrons in an unwanted way.

Robert Keller, 23, of Algonquin, Ill., was charged over the weekend with battery and disorderly conduct.

Dressed like a bloody clown, Keller was a volunteer worker at the Massacre Haunted House.

Keller is accused of inappropriately using an electrical neck massager on a teenage girl as she waited to get into the haunted house.

Prosecutors also accuse Keller of speaking to the teenager inappropriately.

A spokesperson for the haunted house says Massacre Haunted House has been in business for over a decade serving over 100,000 patrons and has done so without incident.

Keller is no longer working with the operation in Montgomery.

He posted $1,500 bond and is due back in court Nov. 5.
