Lakeville McDonald's manager accused of sexual harassment

Posted: Updated:
LAKEVILLE, Minn. (KMSP) -

An assistant manager at a recently-opened McDonald’s in Lakeville, Minn. has been charged with criminal sexual conduct after two employees accused him of sexual harassment and inappropriate touching.

Marco Antonio Arevalo-Santiago, 27, is charged with two counts of fifth-degree criminal sexual conduct. The allegations were reported to police in February by the father of a 16-year-old employee who reported at least four different incidents of harassment.

The allegations including touching the employee near his pockets, asking him about the “length of his French fry” and saying things like, “What’s going on big boy?”

Another employee told police that Arevalo-Santiago “routinely made suggestive and sexual comments to the staff,” and that he himself was the victim of inappropriate touching about two times per week. On several occasions, Arevalo-Santiago would brush up against the employee’s groin area and say “oops” as he walked by.

Arevalo-Santiago admitted to “playing around” with the employees and that it ended up going “too far.” He denied inappropriately touching the 16-year-old employee, but said he wanted to apologize for taking his actions too far.

Arevalo-Santiago faces up to two years in prison, if convicted.
