By Washington Post editors

A McLean man is charged with aggravated sexual battery after he "inappropriately touched" a six-year-old girl Saturday as she read a book in the children's section of a Manassas store, the Post's Crime Scene blog reports.

The girl's father saw the incident, police said, and called them at about 2:15 p.m.. Police identified the man charged as Leonard Laurier St. Hilaire, 44, of the 900 block of Ridge Drive in McLean.

The incident took place at the Burlington Coat Factory store in the 7600 block of Sudley Road in Manassas, Prince William County Police said.

When will parents learn that they have to keep their children BY THEIR SIDE at all times when they are out. A child can disappear in just a matter of seconds. John Walsh lives with this every day since his son Adam was taken years ago. It's only gotten worse. I witnessed a young autistic boy who had been separated from his mother in a mall recently. He couldn't communicate with any of us. It was very scary...and completely unnecessary. A store employee him had found him happily dancing away in the shoe department.

Can't believe the father didn't beat this scumbag down. People like this pondscum should be thrashed soundly on a regular basis.
