Around 5:30 p.m. May 16, the victim was in aftercare at Quiet Waters Elementary, 4150 W. Hillsboro Blvd., when Juan Manns approached the boy and told him to sit on his lap. 

The child told BSO's Special Victims Detective LaTanya Phillips that when he was on Manns' lap, he felt "something" poking his buttocks.
