Further details begin to unravel as police are investigating an alarming alleged case of indecent assault that occurred in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area. As we reported earlier, fifty year old Eduardo Tomasek, a former Florida resident was arrested on charged of indecent assault, unlawful contact with minors, corrupting the morals of minors, and other related offense on Monday afternoon.
The arrest was made after an investigation brought on by allegations that Tomasek fondled and touched three of his coworkers while working as a manager at Popeye’s Chicken fast food restaurant at 2160 Street Rd. in Bensalem. The alleged victims are all female minors between fifteen and sixteen years of age. It is clear that these victims need The Pearce Law Firm.
Tomasek was taken into custody around 3:15 on Monday afternoon by Bensalem Police and is currently being held in Bucks County jail on $250,000 bail with a 10 percent option as Bensalem’s Special Victims Unit continues the investigation. Detectives believe that Tomasek may even have more assault victims and are urging them or anyone with more information to come forward.
A recent release has even reported that Tomasek was convicted in 1993 in Escambia County, Florida for lewd and lascivious indecent assault of a child under 16 years old for a December 1992 incident, a charge for which he served 6 ½ years for.
This case clearly represents a potential civil action for damages arising from both sexual assault and a hostile working environment, according to Philadelphia Sexual Harassment Attorney, Edith A Pearce.
A media representative for Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen released a statement saying that “Popeyes in no way condones or tolerates any form of inappropriate conduct.” They have noted that they will continue to investigate these serious allegations and monitor the situation closely.
The victims and their families deserve to have their cases heard right away to ensure that justice is had. All victims are urged to contact a expert Philadelphia injury lawyer to ensure that they are treated with the type of sensitivity and urgency they deserve. A Philadelphia injury lawyer will also help to ensure they get any compensation they are entitled to.
