NEW YORK (AP) - A teenager has been arrested in connection with a sexual assault on a 4-year-old girl in a play area of a fast food restaurant in Queens.

Police tell WNBC-TV that the 14 year old suspect allegedly hid in the play area of a covered slide at the Hillside Avenue McDonald’s Tuesday evening.

Police say the suspect asked the child if she wanted to be his best friend before allegedly assaulting her.

The suspect was arrested early Wednesday morning on a charge of committing a criminal sexual act.

The McDonald’s franchise owner told WNBC that the safety of its customers was its top priority. It declined further comment.
