Miami, FL (January 7, 2019) – Police say that a man was arrested after he was caught molesting a child on surveillance cameras. The incident took place in a Miami grocery store, according to police.
59-year-old Juan Carlos Gonzalez was arrested for the molestation of a 7-year-old girl. He received charges of lewd and lascivious molestation of a child and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
The incident took place when the girl was waiting in line with her father at a supermarket. Gonzalez was standing behind the girl when she stated that he touched her private parts over her dress. The girl didn’t tell her father until they were leaving the store. He asked to see the surveillance video, which confirmed her claim.
The father attempted to hold Gonzalez at the store until police arrived but he pulled out a pocket knife and threatened the father. Gonzalez was taken into custody and hospitalized.
An investigation into the incident is ongoing at this time.
