(PIX11) – Take a good look at this surveillance video. It shows the man police say sexually assaulted a four-year- old girl in the play area at a McDonald’s on Hillside Avenue.

Police tell us around 8:30 Tuesday night, the suspect hid inside tube slide and waited for the little girl to slide down. Then he forced her to perform a sex act on him. As soon as the child broke free she ran to tell her mother what happened.

Witnesses say the mother chased the suspect tried to grab him but he got away.

Still some customers at the McDonald’s believe some blame goes to the mother.

We tried to go inside the McDonald’s to speak with a manger but a security guard stopped us at the door.

The suspect is described as having a medium complexion, between 18-30-years-old wearing a brown or dark purple shirt, dark jeans with a bandage or lump on his forehead.
