An arrest has been made in connection to an 8-year-old girl who was sexually assaulted in a Hayward 99-cent store, the Alameda County Sheriff's Office announced late Wednesday.
Sheriff's officials are not releasing the suspect's identity or a photo until witness interviews are completed -- which is expected to conclude Thursday.
Authorities on Tuesday released a sketch and new photos of a man suspected of sexually assaulting the girl. Investigators said the man sexually assaulted the girl in the toy aisle of the 99-cent store on Sunday afternoon.
The man ran from the store after the assault. The girl and her mother waited at the store for sheriff's investigators and described the assault.
