An El Paso man is accused of molesting a boy inside a restroom of a pizza restaurant in east El Paso, according to police.

Detectives with the El Paso Police Dept.'s Crimes Against Children's Unit arrested Jose Magallanes, 50, of the 2300 block of Magoffin and charged him with one count of Aggravated Sexual Assault.

The alleged attack happened on June 30 at  Cici's Pizza, 8855 Viscount Blvd. The 7-year-old child, who told police he is not related to Magallanes, reported the man touched his genitals and performed oral sex on him.

After further investigation, police believe they identified the suspect at Magallanes. Officers arrested Magallanes July 19 and booked him into the El Paso County Detention Facility where his bond was set at $25,000.

Police have reason to believe he may have targeted other children at the restaurant. Contact El Paso Police at (915) 832-4400 if you have any information.
