Man grabbed girl at Arlington school, police say
An intoxicated man approached a teenaged girl at her high school track Monday afternoon, grabbed her, kissed her on the head and would not release her until other students confronted the man, Arlington police said. The girl was not hurt.
It happened at about 4:30 p.m. at the Washington and Lee high school track, in the 1300 block of North Stafford St., as the girl was standing with a group of friends.
The man, who she did not know, apprached her and spoke to her in Spanish, police said. When she tried to leave, he grabbed her, kissed her and would not let her go until the other teens intervened, according to police.
The girl ran into the school for help. School officials went outside and confronted the man, who they said was combative. The officials kept him on the scene until police arrived. Tereso Bonilla, 44, of Arlington was arrested and charged with abduction, assault and battery and resisting arrest. Bonilla was held without bond in the county jail.
