Well, it doesn't get much more horrifying than this. Union City police have announced the arrest of a registered sex offender for allegedly raping a 2-year-old girl in a Dollar Tree store Wednesday afternoon.

According to news reports, the child's aunt and grandmother had wandered away for less than a minute to the store's Christmas section to return a ribbon when 36-year-old Eugene Melendres Ramos grabbed the toddler. Police say he began sexually assaulting the girl in the next aisle until the grandmother came upon a horrific situation: Ramos sexually assaulting the toddler with her pants and diaper removed.

According to the state's sex offender registry, Ramos is a Union City resident with prior convictions for assault with the intent to commit rape, sodomy, or oral copulation.

Two bystanders tackled Ramos at the store, located at 1720 Decoto Road,

and he was arrested soon thereafter by a passing BART Police officer. He was

booked for kidnapping, rape, sexual acts with a child, and false

imprisonment.

Police are asking witnesses to call Detective Sergeant Jared Rinetti at (510) 675-5229, or the tip line at (510) 675-5207.
