After reportedly pulling a young girl into the back room of a yogurt shop and sexually assaulting her, a Tutti Frutti store employee is in custody. According to the Long Beach Press Telegram, the alleged incident took place on Saturday in Signal Hill. Two girls, age 7 and 8, reportedly went in to the store to use the bathroom. While one was standing guard outside the restroom door, the employee grabbed her and dragged her into another room where he proceeded to molest her.

The girls gave descriptions of the man to police, who arrested him that same day. He's being held on charges of sexual assault.
