SAN LEANDRO (AP) — Prosecutors have charged a 29-year-old San Leandro man with sexually assaulting an 8-year-old girl who was attacked while shopping with her family at a Walmart store.

The Oakland Tribune reported that Carlyle Villazon was arraigned on Tuesday on six felony counts, including aggravated sexual assault of a child, lewd acts on a child and false imprisonment.

He did not enter a plea.

Police said Villazon attacked the girl at a San Leandro Walmart around 7 p.m. Friday when she left her mother’s side to look for her brother.

The girl apparently returned crying and said a man had touched her inappropriately.

Police say Villazon tried to flee the store when he was spotted by the girl’s mother, but was apprehended by two customers.
