Downtown Disney Arrest

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Authorities say a registered sex offender was arrested after inappropriately touching a girl at Downtown Disney.

Twenty-four-year-old Jose Angel Pamblanco Morales was arrested Wednesday on charges of lewd and lascivious molestation of a child under the age of 12.

He is being held at the Orange County Jail without bond.

Jail spokesman Allen Moore says Morales is to appear in court Thursday.

A sheriff's arrest report says Morales touched an 11-year-old girl's buttocks while she was looking at a magnet in a store.

Morales then allegedly showed the girl a cell phone picture of an adult woman in a bikini.

The arrest report says Morales is a registered sex offender.

Disney Employee Charged With Battery on Child

CLERMONT, Fla. (AP) -- A 54-year-old Disney maintenance man is
behind bars on charges of sexual battery involving a child.

Christian V- Johnson of Clermont was arrested Friday after
police say he molested a girl on multiple occasions from the time
she was 10 to 14 years old. An 18-year-old man also told police
that Johnson molested him when he was 8 years old.

According to an arrest report, Johnson told investigators he did
not see anything wrong with the sexual relationship he had with the female victim. He denied touching the male victim.

Johnson worked as an electronics maintenance worker at Walt
Disney World and has been placed on unpaid leave pending the
outcome of the charges.

The allegations did not involve children Johnson met at the park.
