A man was arrested on suspicion of sexually assaulting a young boy in the electronics section of Walmart in Oxnard.The incident occurred around 8 pm on Friday night and it was caught on the store's surveillance video, according to KTLA. The video of the attack led police to identify the suspect as Juan Francisco Gonzalez, 39, of Oxnard. Gonzalez was arrested at Walmart on Saturday night after an employee recognized him from the video.

Police told KTLA that this isn't the first sexual assault at that Walmart store—a similar incident happened in January but no suspect was ever identified.
