Come on, Not Santa. A man working as a mall Santa Claus in Connecticut has been arrested for allegedly grabbing a teenage co-worker and exposing himself to her in a break room.
On Monday evening, Milford police responded to a report of a possible sexual assault at the Connecticut Post Mall, according to a Milford Police Department press release.
An investigation led to the arrest of Bridgeport resident Prince Carter, 45, who was working as the mall Santa Claus for the holiday season.
Carter was accused of hugging and grabbing a juvenile co-worker and then exposing himself to the victim in the break room.
He was charged later that day with 4th degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor, according to the release.
“We were glad to resolve this issue quickly for the victim, and to avoid any further similar activity involving anyone else,” P.I.O. Mike DeVito of the Milford police department told PEOPLE in a statement.
A spokesperson from the Connecticut Post Mall told the New Haven Register that Carter has been banned from the mall property.
Carter’s bail was set at $25,000 and he was scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday.
Why the black Santa have to be the pervert.
