Girl reports assault at Family Dollar

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – An Albuquerque girl says a man grabbed her butt while she was in one of the aisles at the Family Dollar on Gibson near San Mateo on Tuesday.

The little girl says the guy was 64-year-old Charles Nuanes.

He was in court Wednesday facing one count of criminal sexual contact of a minor.

Police say when they arrested Nuanes and asked why he grabbed the girl, he told them “because she was alone.”

Apparently, the girl’s mother was in another aisle.

Those at the store say this may not be the first time Nuanes has done this here. They say another mother reported the same thing happening to her daughter on another day, but didn’t report it to police.

Those at the store say Nuanes was a regular there, and they’re just happy he’s been arrested.

Nuanes is being held without bond. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
