Man grabs girl on rollerblades in SLO
November 23, 2012
San Luis Obispo police arrested a man Wednesday for grabbing a 9-year-old girl on rollerblades and pulling on her belt loop as she tried to get away.
The girl was rollerblading with her family and waiting to cross Broad Street at South Street when Jaime Hernandez, 44, allegedly approached her from behind, pulled her belt loop and glared at her. Hernandez then pulled the girl as he continued to walk, police say.
Hernandez slightly spun the girl, but she managed to maintain her balance and pull away with her family.
The girl’s mother reported the incident at a nearby fire station, and officers located Hernandez, a transient, and arrested him on suspicion of battery. Officers say that nothing suggested the crime to be sexual in nature.
Hernandez is being held in county jail without bail for violation of parole following a previous battery arrest.
