According to the criminal complaint, the child told officers Longman had been masturbating in a stall in the bathroom. He is alleged to have then stuck his head underneath the child's stall, motioned for the child to bend down and grabbed the child's genitals.

The child said he remained in the stall until Longman left. But Longman came back and laughed, saying he forgot his keys, according to court documents.
