A 27-year-old man, with condoms nearby, sneaked into a St. Paul store changing room and sent a partly clothed 8-year-old girl fleeing for her safety, prosecutors alleged Tuesday.
The charge filed in Ramsey County District Court said Bee Vang was reaching for the girl Sunday at the Kmart on Maryland Avenue before she ran to her mother.
Police soon arrived, had the fitting room Vang was in unlocked and arrested him. In the room with him were “several condoms, condom wrappers, a razor blade, a Rice Krispie Bar and a Rice Krispie Bar inside of a condom,” read the document.
Vang, of St. Paul, remains jailed in lieu of $50,000 bail on a felony charge of interference with the privacy of a minor. A telephone message was left with his attorney seeking reaction.
The girl was in a changing room trying on pants and had her pants off when a man crawled under the dividing wall from the adjacent changing room, the charges said.
Court records show that Vang’s criminal history includes convictions for illicit drugs, auto theft and domestic assault.
