Another groping incident has occurred at an Orlando theme park. Earlier this week at Universal Studios, a homeless man was arrested after being accused of groping a 14-year-old girl while waiting in line for an attraction. Witnesses say Carlos Marino Guia, 48, got in line for The Simpsons Ride behind the girl and her family. She sat on a railing, and the witness reports seeing "the suspect bend over, as to attempt to look up the victim’s shorts, then in an obvious way, stuck his face onto the victim's buttocks."
Guia grew confrontational when the girl told her family she felt the man touch him, but he disappeared before a Universal team member could be notified. Security soon found him trying to hide in a crowd of people.

Guia is in jail, charged with lewd or lascivious conduct on a person under 17 years old.
