It happened just after 5 p.m. on Monday at the fast food restaurant located on the corner of Centre Street and 18 Avenue N.E.

Police said a 16-year-old was cleaning the men’s washroom when she was approached by a man who told her he wanted to use the facilities. She left and began cleaning the women’s washroom.

It’s alleged the man followed the employee into the women’s washroom where he pushed her into a corner and began touching her while holding his hand to her mouth.
