Little Mexico Owner Accused of Sexually Harassing, Inappropriately Touching Employee

Continue reading in our second section for information from sexual assault lawyer Brian Kent on filing a lawsuit over sexual abuse.

The owner of the Little Mexico restaurant has been arrested for allegedly sexually harassing and inappropriately touching a waitress. Khashayar Khoshcheshmi was arrested on Saturday at the restaurant on sexual abuse charges.

The employee told police that Khoshcheshmi abused her in November. Police reportedly spoke with several other female employees, many of whom agreed that Khoshcheshmi has behaved in a way that suggests these allegations are plausible.

The waitress had been working at Little Mexico for about a month when she says she was inappropriately touched. She told police that he had repeatedly sexually harassed her over the course of the month. He allegedly inappropriately touched her in his office on the second floor of the restaurant. Khoshcheshmi claims he was only speaking with her regarding performance problems.

This is not the first complaint of sexual harassment against Khoshcheshmi. In 2013, another female employee filed a complaint saying that she felt uncomfortable being alone with Khoshcheshmi. There were no criminal charges filed in this case, but police used this report as evidence to file a sexual abuse charge in the latest complaint.
