According to authorities, a registered sex offender was detained Friday after entering a southern California elementary school washroom and trying to abuse a girl.
Logan Nighswonger, 32, of Riverside, is being detained without bond at the moment.
Authorities received information about 12:30 p.m. Friday that a guy had scaled the fence and entered a girls’ bathroom at McAuliffe Elementary School. A campus supervisor saw Nighswonger exit the toilet and overheard a female weeping inside. Nighswonger was followed by the campus supervisor as he hopped numerous fences before getting into a vehicle and driving away.
The campus supervisor provided a thorough description of Nighswonger’s vehicle. According to a news release, cops were able to trace the automobile down to a company in Orange County, where Nighswonger was apprehended.
Nighswonger was arrested and put into the Robert Presley Detention Center on charges of attempted sex acts with a kid under the age of ten and being a registered sex offender on school premises.
“We appreciate our law enforcement partners’ quick response in apprehending and eradicating this menace to our society,” Alvord Unified School District Superintendent Allan Mucerino said. “Kids should never be in this circumstance, and it truly worries me that this event happened.”
Riverside police are currently looking into the incident. Anyone with more information is asked to call the Riverside Police Department’s Sexual Assault Child Abuse Unit at 951-353-7121.
