A Florida man is sitting in jail now after being accused of sexually assaulting a 5-year-old girl in an apartment complex after trying to lure her with candy.
29-year-old Lamont Mayweather was arrested Monday after the little girl told authorities that heâ€™d taken off her pants and underwear inside the laundry room of the apartment complex in Pompano Beach.
The young victim had been playing outside her apartment when he offered her candy. She said no, but then walked over to him when he called her from the laundry room.
Afterwards, he told her not to tell anyone, but she immediately told her brother what occurred.
During the investigation, investigators determined that he wasn’t a resident at the apartment complex, and was seen offering candy to other children in the area, according to the police report.
Heâ€™s being held without bond at Broward Main Jail.
