Man arrested on suspicion of lewd conduct at public pool
Darnell Island, of Compton, is accused of touching the girls, ages 9 to 13, “in an inappropriate manner” at the Ted Watkins Memorial Park Pool on East 103rd Street, officials said.
Island was taken into custody Wednesday after lifeguards at the pool reported the incidents.
They told deputies an adult male in the pool was touching girls.
The deputies then interviewed four alleged victims who said they had been touched by the suspect on areas of their body that made them uncomfortable.
Island was being held Friday on $100,000 bail.
The special victims bureau of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department was asking anyone with information or other potential victims to contact them at (877) 710-5273.
