ASTORIA, Ore. (AP) - An employee of a sushi restaurant in Astoria is facing sexual assault charges after being accused of touching a co-worker inappropriately while he was training her.

The Daily Astorian reports (http://bit.ly/1TAF5w7 ) that Maximo Cruz Figueroa, of Seaside, was arrested Tuesday. He faces charges of third-degree sex abuse and harassment with a sexual component.

The 26-year-old victim had reported to police on Friday that she had been touched inappropriately by the man who had recently hired her at the restaurant.

Police say managers at the restaurant have cooperated in the investigation and have placed Cruz on leave pending the outcome of an investigation.
