A 34-year-old man has been charged in connection with an alleged sexual assault of a 3-year-old girl Monday in the restroom of a North Loop restaurant.
Christopher Puente faces a felony charge of predatory criminal sexual assault of a victim under the age of 13 and a misdemeanor count of criminal trespassing, Chicago police said.
About 1 a.m. Wednesday, Puente allegedly refused to leave a business in the 500 block of North Dearborn Street and was arrested for trespassing, police said. While investigating, officers recognized him as being the man pictured in a recently circulated community alert, asking for help identifying a man wanted for allegedly sexually assaulting a 3-year-old girl Monday at a restaurant in the 600 block of North Clark Street.
Puente remains in custody and is scheduled to appear in bond court Thursday.
