A Monterey Park man charged with committing lewd acts on two 10-year-old boys on separate occasions in the restroom of an Arcadia restaurant was found not competent to stand trial Monday and ordered to be transferred to Patton State Hospital.
Kwan Yven Chow, 31, is charged with two counts of lewd acts on a child under 14. The crimes allegedly occurred Nov. 8 and Nov. 10 at Dave & Buster’s at the Westfield Santa Anita shopping mall.
The second alleged victim “notified his mother soon after the incident had occurred. The mother chased the suspect as he left the restroom, which alerted the business managers of Dave & Buster’s,” according to police.
Chow was detained by security personnel at the mall until police arrived.
In the course of the investigation, detectives identified another 10- year-old boy who Chow allegedly fondled in the eatery’s restroom.
Chow has been in jail since his arrest.
A progress report from the hospital is due on May 11.
