Girl abused at McDonald’s: three charges filed against a Granbyen
The Granbyen suspected of assaulting a girl aged just nine in the bathroom of a McDonald’s restaurant, Christopher Dégarie Giroux, faces charges of sexual assault, sexual interference and failure to comply with a order prohibiting him from being in the presence of a person under 16 years of age.
C ette sordid story began when a family move to Granby stopped at the McDonald’s restaurant in Denison Street Monday night around 22 pm. The girl then went alone to the restroom. The suspect then followed him to join her in the room.
Her father, possibly worried not to see her come back, returned to the room where he surprised a man near his daughter.
A scramble ensued between the father and the suspect. The latter managed to escape. A description of the individual allowed the rushed police in the area to locate him on Drummond Street that he gained by taking the floating bridge behind the restaurant.
The 22-year-old man, who is known to the police, was arrested.
In particular, the girl suffered a nervous shock. The nature of the actions of the man was not specified by the police service on Tuesday.
Three charges were filed against the Granbyen: sexual assault, minor sexual contact, and court order disrespect.
It was forbidden for Mr. Dégarie Giroux, a young man of small stature, to approach a minor following a previous conviction for similar acts.
In May 2018, in Longueuil, he was sentenced to 90 days in prison for sexual assault, sexual contact with a minor, non-compliance with his conditions and making false evidence in court.
Two years earlier, he had been found guilty of robbery and obstruction of police work.
