According to reports, a Chicago teacher and her young students were shocked last week when they saw an 18-year-old man molesting a 7-year-old girl as the class attended an online learning session.
The teacher informed the school’s principal and the man – who was identified as the child’s elder cousin – was soon arrested, Fox of Chicago reported.
Authorities said the suspect, Cattrell Walls, a resident of the city’s South Side, faces a felony charge of predatory criminal sexual assault in connection with Thursday’s incident. A judge refused bail for Walls when he appeared in court on Saturday, the report said.
“I don’t know why. I am sorry, I am sorry, ”a turbulent Walls said after detaining prosecutors.

The alleged sexual offense allegedly took place at the cousin’s grandmother’s house, where the girl was staying during the day for online classes. After the teacher alerted the school principal, the principal contacted the girl’s family, the Chicago Police and the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services.
During the child’s visit to get more information about what happened, the girl told the school principal that Valls molested her too many times, the report said. That alleged history informed the judge’s no-bells decision about Walls.
Judge Charles Beach said, “According to the victim, this history of assault for nearly a year gives me confidence that this is not something that will stop just because I ordered it to be done.” “This history and his actions from this case convinced me that he is a threat to one person and the whole community.”

According to the Chicago Tribune, the child was transported to Comer Children’s Hospital, police said.
Schools CEO Janice Jackson told the Tribune that in recent years Chicago public schools have increased their support for students who have been victims of sexual harassment or other harm because teachers and counselors are often the first to arrive.
According to Fox 32, the walls’ next court date is November 21.
