A Laramie man has been arrested after being found in a female restroom with a minor girl at the Laramie Plains Civic Center on Friday evening according to the Laramie Police Department. Commander Mitch Cushman reports that the 20-year-old was arrested for sexual abuse of a minor and says they are still investigating to see if this incident is connected to a similar incident that took place in August at Undine Park.

Cushman recommends that parents accompany their minor children into any public restroom. He also recommends counseling children on what to do if their privacy is violated.

The LPD is not releasing any further information at this time. Third degree sexual abuse of a minor is a felony punishable by imprisonment for not more than fifteen (15) years.
