A San Diego County sheriff's deputy was arrested today on suspicion of groping a teenage girl two months ago at a Vista restaurant.
Timothy Wilson Jr., who is assigned to detentions enforcement at Vista Jail, allegedly fondled the 14-year-old's buttocks at about 7 p.m. on March 21 while standing in line behind her at a Panda Express on Main Street, near South Santa Fe Avenue, then hurried out of the business and fled in a black sedan, according to Sheriff Bill Gore.
A surveillance camera captured images of the perpetrator, who remained unidentified until this week, authorities said. SEE THE VIDEO BELOW
Wilson, 32, was booked into county jail on suspicion of committing a lewd act on a minor and placed on unpaid leave, Gore told reporters.
