A Florida man was arrested last week after he allegedly inappropriately touched a young girl while she was in line at a grocery store with her father.
Juan Gonzalez, 59, was at a Sedano’s supermarket in Miami on Friday when he allegedly touched the 7-year-old girl’s buttocks and vaginal area multiple times over her dress, WFOR-TV reported.
As they were leaving the store, the child told her father what happened, and the father went to the manager. The two reviewed surveillance footage from store video cameras, which reportedly confirmed what the girl alleged.
The father reportedly stopped the man when he tried to leave and held him until police arrived at the store. Gonzalez, at that point, allegedly pulled out a pocket knife and told the dad in Spanish: “If you hit me, I’ll stab you.”
Gonzalez was reportedly taken into custody on charges of lewd and lascivious molestation of a child under the age of 12 and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
