A U.S. Postal Service worker was arrested on suspicion of choking an 11-year-old girl at a Commerce park, authorities said Tuesday night.

The girl told deputies that 55-year-old Daniel Villasenor choked her because she had laughed at him after he accidentally entered a woman's bathroom at Bristow Park, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

"Several witnesses saw the postal worker get angry and choke the young girl," the department said in a statement.

Villasenor was being held at the East Los Angeles sheriff's station.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call detectives at (323) 890-5500.
