MONTEREY PARK, Calif., Aug. 27 (UPI) — A California store owner was jailed on $10 million bail for allegedly holding a worker in a box bound with tape and dressed only in an adult diaper, police say.
Robert Yachen Lee appeared in Alhambra Superior Court Friday on kidnapping and attempted murder charges, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Prosecutors allege Lee lured the female employee into a soundproof storage room above O My Yogurt in Monterey Park early Wednesday and knocked her out. He then allegedly removed her clothing, dressed her in the diaper and put a collar around her neck, bound her with tape and put her in a box.
The woman later escaped and went to a nearby optometrist’s office and police were notified.
