MIDWEST CITY, Okla. (KFOR) -- The man who allegedly raped a 4-year-old inside a bathroom at a McDonald's in Midwest City has been officially charged.

37-year-old Joshua Kabatra now faces one count of rape in the first degree by instrumentation and two counts of lewd, indecent or lewd acts with a child under 16.

Back on July 18, police responded to a McDonald's near SE 15th and Air Depot after a 4-year-old girl said she had been touched while in the bathroom in the play area of the restaurant.

Daycare employees told officers the 4-year-old had gone to the bathroom and they went to check on her after noticing the child had "been gone for a while."

The daycare employee says the door was locked, and after knocking for a while, a man answered the door and came out with hands up, saying "I was just washing my hands."

The 4-year-old was asked if she was touched by the man and she said "yes," pointing to her genital area.

Kabatra told police he was in the playground area when he started to feel sick and went to the bathroom, knocking on the door.

He said when he opened the door, a female was sitting on the toilet. He says he then threw up in the sink, washed his hands and left the bathroom.

However, during a later interview with police, we're told the suspect admitted to touching the child.

"It’s just a horrific situation for any parent, a nightmare for any child and certainly for the daycare," Chief Brandon Clabes with the Midwest City Police Dept. said. "At this point, there’s nothing indicating the daycare workers did anything wrong. They were supervising the children — the only person who did anything wrong is our suspect."
