The Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s Office has authorized a complaint against an Ypsilanti man who allegedly touched the breasts of a Saline teenager he worked with at the Saline KFC.

The incident occurred Dec. 1, 2015.

According to the 17-year-old employee, she was walking into the back of the kitchen to fill a mop bucket when the 36-year-old man, who does not speak English, started repeating “pollo” and using both hands to touch the chickens on the girl’s shirt. The chickens on the shirt were located on the girl’s breasts. Pollo is Spanish for chicken.

She told police she tried to cover her breasts and told the man “don’t touch me,” but he persisted, according to the police report.

She pushed him away and complained to her manager, who sent the employees home and contacted human resources. The girl told her mother, who called police.

Police, with the help of an interpreter, later interviewed the man. Through the interpreter, the man told police he was only playing when he poked his finger into her chest, according to the report.

The prosecutor’s office has authorized a misdemeanor complaint of assault and battery.

According to the report, KFC fired the man.
