Police on Long Island say a teenager found herself locked in a restaurant, the target for a late-night sexual attack by her boss.

The owner of the Westbury restaurant is now charged with groping the 16-year-old girl. Police say 32-year-old Memet Arslan was closing up the Mediterranean Kebob for the night, and all the cooks and servers had gone home except for the victim.

Detectives say Arslan locked the door, grabbed the girl and began forcibly touching her. The victim was able to push Arslan away and escape. She then called police.

Arslan was arrested and charged with forcible touching, endangering the welfare of a child and sexual abuse.
