A UPS worker from San Bruno who allegedly fondled two girls in the same day must stand trial on felony molestation charges and possession of child pornography, a judge ruled Friday.
Glenn Albrecht, 49, appeared at the South San Francisco Courthouse for a preliminary hearing, a hearing on a motion to consolidate two cases and a defense motion to suppress evidence.
He is charged with felony molestation and possession of child pornography; Albrecht faces 11 years in prison if convicted on all charges, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe told Patch.
Albrecht is currently out of custody on a property bond for $200,000 bail, court records indicate.
On Friday afternoon, San Mateo County Superior Court Judge Donald Ayoob denied a defense motion to suppress surveillance tapes from one of the alleged groping incidents and also refused to quash a search warrant that was served on Albrecht's San Bruno home.
Following a preliminary hearing, Ayoob found sufficient evidence to warrant a trial and agreed to consolidate two cases against the defendant, court records indicate.
San Bruno police caught up with Albrecht Aug. 26, when the parents of a 6-year-old girl reported that the suspect had grabbed their child from behind and fondled her at a Target store, court documents indicate.
The suspect wore a T-shirt with the logo, "Rub Me For Luck" on it and was quickly caught.
The girl's father hit the man and police were called, said Wagstaffe.
During their investigation, police came upon another girl -- this one was 11 -- whom the suspect also fondled from behind after the 6-year-old's attack, authorities said.
A search of the suspect's home yielded a life-sized doll in the form of a child and also child pornography, Wagstaffe reported.
