CALIFORNIA – Police arrested a registered sex offender on suspicion of sexually assaulting a 2-year-old girl in a discount store in Union City, California.

Union City police said Eugene Ramos, 36, snatched the child in an aisle of a Dollar Store and assaulted her last Wednesday, while the child’s grandmother and mother were shopping in the next aisle.

Reports said the toddler’s grandmother witnessed the assault and started chasing Ramos.

Two bystanders then tackled Ramos and pinned him down until law enforcers arrived.

Ramos is now at the Santa Rita jail in Dublin, California on suspicion of kidnapping, rape, and sexual acts with a child.

The child is now recovering from minor injuries at the Children’s Hospital in Oakland. Balitang America
