Ex-Walmart employee admits sexually assaulting customer, sentenced to probation

A former Walmart employee was sentenced to 12 months probation after he pleaded guilty to grabbing a customer’s buttocks in the Union City store, Channel 2 Action News reported. 

Aaron Alghanee, 29, allegedly assaulted the woman while she shopped at the store in May, according to court records. In a statement to Channel 2, Walmart said Alghanee is no longer employed by the company. 

Video surveillance obtained by Channel 2 shows Alghanee following the victim in the store. He then brushed up against her and grabbed her buttocks, according to the news station. 

The victim told Channel 2 she had to fight him off her. 

“He (wouldn’t) let go as I'm fighting him,” she said, “and finally he lets go and says ‘I’m sorry, I’m sorry. I slipped and fell.’”

Alghanee pleaded guilty to the crime Thursday. 

In addition to probation, Alghanee must complete a sexual deviancy evaluation and treatment if necessary. ‘
