SAN DIEGO (AP) — A man has been arrested on suspicion of crawling into the bathroom stall at a San Diego store and attempting to sexually assault a woman.
Lt. Chuck Kaye said 40-year-old Gregory Schwartz was taken into custody Sunday.
His arrest came three days after a woman reported the attack in the women's restroom inside a Big Lots store. She said the man crawled into the stall, grabbed her and tried to sexually assault her. The woman fought back and was able to run out of the bathroom.
She told several local TV stations her attacker wore a pink Barbie costume.
Police said a store security guard confronted the suspect, but he threatened the guard with what appeared to be a screw driver and fled.
