A Corona man who maintained rides at Disneyland has been charged with sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl, and authorities are seeking the public’s help to identify additional victims.
Bryan William Anast, 45, was arraigned Monday in Orange County Superior Court and is being held on $1-million bail. He is charged with five felony counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child and possession of child pornography.
If convicted, he faces 63 years to life in prison.
In May, the girl told Orange County sheriff’s officials that Anast had assaulted her on four occasions between 1997 and 2000. One assault allegedly occurred at Yosemite National Park.
Investigators who searched Anast’s home found videos of child pornography on a computer storage device.
Anast was arrested last week at Disneyland, where he worked as a machinist.
The Orange County district attorney’s office is asking anyone with information about other potential victims to contact investigator Paul Carvo at (714) 347-8794.
