Chipotle is going to have to come out them pockets after a harrowing sexual assault allegations, the victim was 16 when she started working for the brand and within weeks, she said her 26-year-old assistant manager started touching her breasts.
He pretended it was an accident at first.
According to Kfor.com
Assistant manager Gerardo Solis was regularly touching and “grooming” her for sex at a Chipotle in Houston, Texas.
By the summer of 2014, it got to the point where he would have unprotected sex with her “at the restaurant dumpster, in the restroom, in the office and other places,” the lawsuit states.
“Chipotle’s conduct in this case was outrageous,” said attorney Ben Hall, who represented the teenager in the case. “Chipotle wanted to couch it as a relationship, but the jury was clear you cannot have a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old child. That’s why they call it a sexual assault.” The victim’s mother claims she notified Solis’ boss, the general manager, but he did nothing.
In fact, he likely helped cover up what was going on.
When the mother showed up once to pick up her daughter from work and found the daughter and Solis were not there, the general manager begged her not to call police. “He took her twice to the Chipotle dumpster right behind the restaurant to have sex,” Hall said. “Then, he requested to have sex with her in the Chipotle bathroom.”
The lawsuits said Solis would even remove the girl from work and take her places like a nearby park to have sex with her, “thereby depriving her of earnings and abusing her.”
