Bring atttention to the quiet secluded corner this creep was in doing this.
There aren't really any quiet, secluded corners in the children's book section of the Sylvania branch. (Which is where the media reported it took place.)
It is a very busy library branch, and the children's book area is no exception.
A large section of the shelves is shorter, where any adult (or tall child) could easily be seen over the top of the shelves.
There is a desk for the children's librarian right in the middle of the section.
The section with the full sized shelves is set up so that the opening of the rows faces the librarian's desk. (And the main entrance/exit to the library.)
Given the set-up of that section and how busy it is there, there's virtually no "secluded" spot in the kids' section.
I guess that's what makes his actions even more scary...he would have known that there was a very good chance that he'd get caught in the act, yet he did it anyhow.
(It would be scary regardless, of course, but to me it almost signifies a more severe lack of impulse control to just go after the girl when it wasn't even a secluded spot.)
