Man Annoyed Minor at Encinitas Library: Sheriff's Department

A teenager visiting the Encinitas Library last month had to push away a man who was trying to kiss her, the San Diego County Sheriff's Department confirmed Tuesday. 

Jason Toussaint, 19, was taken into custody on July 6, accused of annoying a minor, according to San Diego County Sheriff's Department spokesperson Melissa Aquino.

The incident happened on July 5 at the Encinitas Library on Cornish Drive. Deputies say they received a report about the incident the next day. 

A 17-year-old female told deputies the man approached her and asked if he could kiss her. 

Even though she said no, the teenager said the man still tried to kiss her. 

She told deputies she pushed the man away and then he asked her if she wanted to have sex. 

When she said no, the man left the library.  

After an investigation, deputies arrested and charged Toussaint in the case. 

Toussaint pleaded guilty to the charge and was released from custody on probation, Aquino said.
