BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - Bail has been set at $500,000 for a 39-year-old man charged with sexually assaulting a 7-year-old girl in the bathroom of a Bozeman grocery store.

Johnny Barreiro-Guerrero made an initial appearance in Gallatin County Justice Court Monday on two sexual assault charges and indecent exposure.

Prosecutors say Barreiro-Guerrero was working on a cleaning crew in the store Saturday when he allegedly attacked the girl. She reported he kissed her on the face and lips, held her against the wall and touched her under her dress before exposing his genitals to her.

Detectives say surveillance video shows the girl was in the bathroom with Barreiro-Guerrreo for three minutes and looked distraught when she walked out. Defense attorney Karolina Tierney said her client denied having any physical contact with the girl.
