Man convicted of sexual assault at Market Street Burger King

The District Attorney’s office announced Wednesday afternoon that a jury has found Derrell Anderson, 41, guilty of a lewd act on a child.

The assault took place on May 11, 2016 at a Burger King on Market Street. According to the DA’s office, the defendant approached a young woman and asked her for money. When she said no, the defendant reached out and touched her breast. The victim immediately left Burger King and told her father, who called the police. Surveillance footage confirmed the assault, and the defendant was arrested.

“This was a particularly bright and courageous young woman,” said Assistant District Attorney O’Bryan Kenney.  “I greatly admire her for coming forward to ensure the defendant was held accountable, and that he did not do this to another young person.”

A date for sentencing has not yet been scheduled.
