Police is hunting a teenager that is suspect of rapping a girl of five in a McDonald’s Playland in Anderson Township, Ohio.
The young boy, who could be as young as 13, is said to have touched the girl before making her touch him in an inappropriate way.
The teenager then walked out of the McDonald’s as the victim burst into tears and went to her grandmother who was waiting nearby “with the look on her face as if something was wrong”.
According to the police report, the boy had climbed into the play area specifically to molest the five-year-old girl.
The incident happened on October 29th but police have only just released the details.
The girl was inside the indoor play area on her own around 9:00 p.m. when she was approached. The teenager left moments before the girl reported the assault.
The woman who called 911 told police: “There was an incident in the play area with an older child and a younger child which may have involved some sexual contact”
Police said that the suspect was wearing a University of Cincinnati jacket, is between 5 feet and 5’6″ and 120 to 130 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
The teenager was captured on CCTV inside the McDonald’s as he entered and left.
Parents reacted with horror and said it was “obscene’ what had happened.
McDonald’s customer Margo Mather said: “I don’t want my kids going over there just playing by themselves.”
Heather Kenyon, another customer, added: “It’s frightening. It have kids and I take them there all the time.
“I’ve never had a problem, ever. Usually there’s parents and supervised kids and its really a great place for when its winter time and you’ve got to let your kids run off all their energy.
“Its scary…my son’s six so it could easily have been him.”
Xavier Sullivan, 17, said: “It’s just crazy somebody would do that, especially here. I don’t understand why you would ever make somebody do that.”
Jason Pickard, who owns the McDonald’s franchise, said that he was working with police to find out what happened.
Jason Pickard said in a statement: “The safety and well-being of my customers, especially children, is extremely important.
“I’m taking this matter very seriously and fully cooperating with authorities in their investigation.”
