Joshua Kabatra arrested after sexually assaulting a four year old girl while out on a daycare outing as she went to use restroom at Midwest City, Oklahoma McDonald’s outlet.
Joshua David Kabatra, 37, was arrested on two counts of rape and one count of lewd acts with a child following the incident at a McDonald’s in Midwest City Okla., Oklahoma City’s Fox 25 reported.
The four-year-old girl left her caretakers to use a restroom located within the McDonald’s play area, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by Oklahoma City’s KWTV-DT.
One of the caretakers who went to check on the girl – after she’d been gone for an inordinate amount of time – found that the restroom door was locked and began knocking. Kabatra eventually opened the door with his arms raised saying ‘I was just washing my hands,’ the caretaker told police.
The child told the caretaker and police that Kabatra had touched her genital areas with both his hands and his own genitals.
Sexual predator followed toddler girl:
Kabatra told police that he felt ill and went into the unlocked restroom where he found the child already sitting on the toilet. He claimed he threw up in the sink, washed his hands and then left.
The man later relented and admitted to ‘inappropriately’ touching the four year old girl. The victim was interviewed at the care center, saying Kabatra had molested her and asked her to touch him.
The violation is believed to have occurred after the suspect who was in the playground area followed the victim after she left the group according to Midwest City Police Chief, Brandon Clark.
‘At McDonald’s, nothing is more important to us than the safety and well-being of our customers,’ the fast food vendor said in a statement. ‘We are deeply disturbed by the incident that occurred at one of our Oklahoma restaurants earlier this week. We are fully cooperating with the police during their investigation.’
Not immediately clear is what motivated Kabatra in sexually abusing the child.
