FREMONT (AP) — A registered sex offender being held on suspicion of sexually assaulting a 2-year-old girl in a Union City retail store is due back in court Monday.
Thirty-six-year-old Eugene Ramos is being held without bail after being charged Friday with committing a forcible lewd act with a child younger than 14, assault with intent to commit a sex crime and attempted intercourse or sodomy with a child younger than 10.
Union City police say Ramos sexually assaulted the girl Wednesday afternoon at a Dollar Tree Store while her grandmother and aunt were shopping in the next aisle.
Ramos did not enter a plea during his hearing Friday. Deputy public defender Kristen McCannon, the attorney representing him, refused to comment after the hearing.
Ramos is scheduled to return to court Monday at 9 a.m.
