The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

Jamie Eugene Jacinto

Parents taking their children to a Corte Madera bookstore had to be sure they kept an extra cautious eye on their children, after two different incidents where a man at the bookstore molested children visiting there. Police say Jamie Eugene Jacinto, 32, was arrested for the incidents, and is currently being held on charges of suspicion of lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14.

According to Twin Cities police, a man reached under an 8-year-old girl's dress at a Barnes & Noble bookstore in June after she didn't answer whether her parents were nearby. Police also believe Jacinto may have exposed himself to a 5-year-old girl at the bookstore last month.
Jacinto escaped capture after the two incidents, but police received a tip on a possible sighting of him on Dec 23 at the same Barnes and Noble store and were able to locate him.
Source After further investigation, a search warrant was obtained for Jacinto's home, and police found enough evidence inside the home to obtain an arrest warrant for him as well.
