At some point within that time, a man allegedly approached the minor to talk to them, eventually asking if they’d like to sit down.

Police believe that once the two were seated, the male suspect, who is described in the release as a 40 to 50-year-old man, began inappropriately touching the minor.

The release states that a witness saw the two talking, and had approached them out of concern for the minor. The suspect then used the excuse that he had to text someone to leave the area.
