Man molested girl at Orange County McDonald's, authorities say
Man charged with lewd, lascivious molestation on victim under 12 years old
Orlando police are investigating the alleged molestation of a young girl inside a McDonald's bathroom stall.
Juan Fragoso, 54, was arrested on Wednesday and charged with lewd and lascivious molestation on a victim under 12 years old.
Police said the victim's mother contacted police after her daughter reported Fragoso went into the girls bathroom at the McDonald's on Altamira Drive off of International Drive and into the stall where he touched her inappropriately.
Police say the girl ran out of the bathroom and told her cousin what happened. A witness overheard the two speaking and confronted the suspected who claimed he didn't speak English.
McDonald's managers were able to locate the child's mother, who was in the middle of a job interview at the restaurant when the alleged incident happened.
Local 6 has reached out to the McDonald's and was referred to corporate offices. McDonald's is cooperating with the OPD investigation, officials said.
Fragoso was back in court Friday for the second time in two days because the judge wanted the state attorney to provide additional information that shows probably cause that the crime was committed.
Fragoso was given no bond at his second appearance on Friday. He faces life in prison.
The judge ordered Fragoso to have no contact with anyone under the age of 18 if he is released from jail.
