HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - A disturbing crime out of Henrico County where police say a man groped a high school student on a GRTC Care van.
48-year-old Sean Malone is charged with sexual battery. Police said both Malone and the 20-year-old woman were passengers on the van.
We don't know where Malone was going last Thursday, but police said the student was on her way to an after school program on Bremo Road near St. Mary's Hospital.
When she got there, police said she alerted her parents to her ordeal, which was caught on the van's surveillance camera. The disturbing images of his alleged sex crime have not been released.
It was last Thursday when police said a security camera captured Malone as he inappropriately touched a Henrico High School student.
Both Malone and the student were passengers on a C-van, which is specialized transportation under GRTC.
Police said Malone moved from his seat up front to the back of the van where the woman was sitting and started touching her and making sexually explicit comments.
Police said Malone reached under her shirt and touched her breasts and then groped her vaginal area over her pants and talked about what he wanted to do with her.
When the van stopped at her destination in the 5800 block of Bremo Road, police said the woman called her parents, who in turn contacted GRTC.
Two days later, Malone was in jail.
The GRTC Care vans are used to take people to and from training as they prepare to return to the workforce.
When NBC12 asked GRTC for reaction about the case against Malone, a company spokeswoman said,"We can't confirm or comment on an active police investigation."
Malone was in jail up until this Tuesday when he bonded out. He's expected in court in early November.
