Covina man suspected of groping woman in movie theater

COVINA — Police arrested a man Friday after he allegedly groped a 19-year-old woman in a Covina movie theater, authorities said.
Miguel Aldaco, 39, of was booked on suspicion of sexual battery and was being held in lieu of $20,000 bail, Covina police officials said.
The incident took place about 7 p.m. at AMC Theaters, 1414 North Azusa Avenue, Covina police Lt. Tim Doonan said.
A 19-year-old woman was watching a movie with her family when she felt something touching her upper legs and buttocks, above her clothing, the lieutenant said.
She saw Aldaco, who was seated nearby in the theater, reaching out and touching her, he said.
The young woman immediately stood up and told her parents what had happened, Doonan said, and Aldaco fled from the theater.
A security guard followed him outside and flagged down a passing California Highway Patrol officer, who arrested Aldaco without further incident, he said.
The woman and her parents were upset, Doonan added, but the alleged victim was not injured.
Aldaco was due for arraignment Tuesday in West Covina Superior Court, authorities said.
