$10-million bail set for man who allegedly held worker in a box
Robert Yachen Lee appeared briefly in Superior Court in Alhambra on Friday afternoon.
Lee allegedly lured the employee to a storage room above O My Yogurt on South Atlantic Boulevard early Wednesday, knocked her unconscious and then -- after removing her clothing and dressing her in an adult diaper -- placed her in a box, authorities said.
Prosecutors believe Lee planned the kidnapping because the storage room had recently been soundproofed.
The woman was able to free herself and escape to a nearby optometrist's office, where she alerted police.
