A Corona man has been arrested after following a 10-year-old girl along 81st Street, asking her to come over to him and trying to hold her hand, according to police.
Jaminton Carela, 29, allegedly saw the girl walking across the street from him along 81st Street at 7:40 am yesterday and motioned for her to come over to him.
When the girl ignored him, Carela crossed the street and followed her along 81 Street and reached his hand out to her.
The girl ran from Carela and yelled for help. A nearby school crossing guard responded and confronted him at 37 Avenue, causing him to flee the location.
Carela has been charged with an “Act in a Manner Injurious to a Child,” police said.
