On January 6, the Brentwood Police Department responded to a report of a male who had allegedly inappropriately touched a child inside a restaurant in the City of Brentwood.
According to Walter O’Grodnick, Police Lieutenant, the incident occurred in the 6200 block of Lone Tree Way around 5:30 pm where Armando Guzman Castro, 36, allegedly touched the child while he was a customer at the time but left prior to the officers arriving on scene.
“It was alleged that Castro accosted the Victim and touched the Victim over the Victim’s clothing. Further investigation led to the identity and arrest of Castro at his home in Brentwood,” said O’Grodnick. “Castro was charged and booked at the Martinez Detention Facility on the listed charges. We are not aware of any additional victims at this time.”
- 288(A) PC: Lewd or Lasc Acts w/Child Under 14yrs
- 243.4(A) PC: Sexual Battery (M)
- 236 PC: False Imprisonment (M)
O’Grodnick also added that the reason behind the false imprisonment charge was that Castro’s positioning momentarily restricted the victims movement when the alleged sexual battery occurred.
