Pablo Salgado - Repeat Sex Offender - Molests child at McDonad's

A 52-year-old employees of at a Northwest Side McDonald's was held on $150,000 bond Tuesday on charges alleging he performed a sexual act in front of an 8-year-old girl in the play area of the restaurant.

Pablo Salgado, of the 2900 block of North Monitor Avenue, was charged with sexual exploitation of a child, according to police.

Judge Peggy Chiampas set bond at $150,000 during a Tuesday hearing, according to Cook County State's Attorney's office spokesman Andy Conklin. Salgado is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on Oct. 19.

Salgado was arrested Monday at 5:40 p.m. at the restaurant in the 3500 block of North Harlem Avenue and the felony charge was approved at 10:37 p.m. Monday, according to police.

The alleged incident took place the evening of Sept. 19 at the restaurant at the Harlem Avenue address when Salgado was cleaning the slides in the children’s play area where an 8-year-old girl went to play, according to police.

Salgado allegedly asked the child, “Do you know what the older kids do in the tunnel slides after the store is closed? They rub each other.’’ This he supposedly said while rubbing his groin area, groaning and telling the girl that the older kids “like it,’’ according to police.

Salgado allegedly attempted to prevent the child from leaving while he fondled himself, police said. She was able to leave when another child entered the area, distracting Salgado, police said.

Salgado was reportedly arrested in 2003 for public indecency and was convicted for criminal sexual abuse in 1999 for which he received supervision, according to police.
