BRENTWOOD, Tenn. (WMOT)  --  A member of the Brentwood YMCA says he was sexually assaulted several times at the facility and that staff member were aware of the incident.

The Tennessean says Adam Boswell has filed a $1 million lawsuit against YMCA and the man he accuses of attacking him.

Boswell says he was assaulted four times between July, 2015, and February, 2016, of this year in the Y’s sauna, Jacuzzi pool and locker room.

The lawsuit names his attacker as Jack Dabney, a former Advisory Board member at the Brentwood Y.

Boswell says he repeatedly informed YMCA staff about being groped by Dabney. He says staff told him they were familiar with Dabney and that other Y members had also made complaints against him.

Boswell filed a report with Brentwood Police in late February and Assistant Chief Thomas Walsh tells the newspaper that an investigation into the incidents is underway.

Dabney has denied the allegations through his attorney.
