Police have arrested a 14-year-old for the sexual assault of a four-year-old girl at a Jamaica McDonald’s.
The unidentified boy has been charged with a criminal sexual act, said authorities.
Anzy Dumorney, a Jamaica resident, watched carefully as his four children climbed through the tunnels and ropes of the fast food restaurant’s play area – the same site of the sexual assault just over one day before.
“It’s crazy, but I’m not going to stop them from having fun,” said Dumorney, who lives a few blocks from the Hillside Avenue spot. “As long as I’m sitting here watching them, I don’t mind.”
On Tuesday, at roughly 8:30 p.m., the 14-year-old allegedly sexually assaulted the victim while inside one of the tubular play structures, police said. The child reportedly broke free and told her mother what happened, but the mother could not keep hold of her daughter’s attacker.
The suspect was originally thought to be between 18 and 30, but then police discovered otherwise.
Dumorney’s children, all girls ages four through seven, played happily after the incident, until a McDonald’s employee came into the play area and told them the section was closed.
The employee said there is no timetable to reopen the play place.
Dumorney, who frequents the McDonald’s with his kids, said he has never seen any child who looks over the age of 10 playing in the structure.
