    A 70-year-old Salinas man was arrested Friday after he allegedly harassed an 11-year-old girl riding on a Greyhound bus with her family, according to the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office.

    The incident occurred on board a Greyhound bus on its way from Los Angeles to San Jose, sheriff's Sgt. Jose Cardoza said.

    The suspect, 70-year-old Maximiliano Aguirre, and victim were both riding on the bus when Aguirre allegedly annoyed and harassed the girl.

    The girl's family immediately notified the Greyhound driver, who pulled the bus over and called 911, Cardoza said.

    Aguirre was detained this morning while deputies interviewed the victim and other witnesses, and charges are forthcoming, Cardoza said.

    Anyone with information on this case is asked to call (408) 808-4500 or leave an anonymous tip at (408) 808-4431.
