BIXBY, Oklahoma -- A lewd molestation suspect was booked into Tulsa County Jail early Wednesday after police say he walked in on a young girl using the bathroom at a public park.

Esvin Lopez, 21, was arrested on a felony complaint of lewd molestation. According to an arrest report, the child's father detained Lopez until police could make the arrest.

A minor child, whose age is not listed, was using the women's bathroom at Haikey Creek Park in Bixby at about 7 p.m. Tuesday.

"The defendant walked in and stood in front of her while she had her pants down using the bathroom," the report states. "Defendant stood there speaking in Spanish for approximately 30 seconds or so. Her father walked in and grabbed the defendant and threw him down on the ground."

The arrest report goes on to say that the father admitted to punching Lopez. Lopez's friends came up and tried to separate the two men until police arrived.

A Spanish-speaking officer was called to the scene to question Lopez, but police say he declined to make any statements.

The arrest report notes that the "male" and "female" signs for the bathrooms are posted in English and Spanish.

Lopez, who police say works at El Tequila, was being held without bond for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
