Unfortunately today brings more horrible news involving soccer and molestation. A 6-year-old boy at a Pico Rivera park for a soccer match was sexually molested in a public bathroom on Saturday, say officials, according to LA Now.
The boy reported being molested at 2:37 p.m. in a stall of the restroom at Rio Hondo Park, where he had come for a soccer match, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff's Sgt. Michael Thomas.
The boy immediately told his mother and pointed out the suspect as witnesses watched him flee the scene in a white van with a license plate starting with "6J," according to a news release.
No sketch of the suspect was available Sunday morning, however, he was described by witnesses as a white male, approximately 6 feet tall and 200 pounds, with tattoos on his neck tattoos and one arm, and was reportedly wearing a headband with a Mexican flag on it.
Deputies have increased patrol at Rio Hondo and other parks over the holiday weekend following the attack, according to officials.
