MISSOURI (KFVS) -

A St. Louis man, who also has criminal charges against him in St. Francois County, has been committed to the Sex Offender Rehabilitation and Treatment Service in Farmington.

According to Attorney General Chris Koster, a judge found Donnell Donaldson, 32, to be a sexually violent predator after a bench trial in early December.

Donaldson suffers from a variety of mental and sexual disorders that investigators believe escalated into violent attacks against strangers, according to Koster.

Court documents show that Donaldson exposed himself in public multiple times from 2004-2006.

Then, in November 2006, he sexually assaulted a woman trying to enter her home, attempted to rape a woman who was opening a restaurant for the day, and committed a sexual attack on a woman in a public stairwell of an apartment building.

According to Koster, Donaldson continued to exhibit "aggressive and violent behaviors towards female prison staff, including making death threats."

Court documents show that Donaldson, who's address is listed as the Sexual Offender Rehabilitation and Treatment Center in Farmington, was charged with two counts of assault on March 2, 2016 and two additional counts of assault on March 9, 2016.

Donaldson is the 19th person to be committed as a sexually violent predator in the state of Missouri this year.
