The girl told police that White tasked her what her name was and grabbed her butt with his hand.

That is when the girl ran back into the facility, trying to get away from the man.

Employees and other patients at the facility then ran to the girl’s rescue and pulled White off of the girl.

Officers at the scene then reviewed surveillance video, which reportedly confirmed the girl’s story.
