Man accused of unlawful sexual conduct at mosque

A 26-year-old man was issued a citation on suspicion of unlawful sexual contact Thursday evening, for allegedly grabbing the back side of a woman who was leaving her job cleaning a local mosque.

The woman told police that Adil Liyakatali Shaikh followed her around the mosque, at 801 Gunnison Ave., while she cleaned, and when she collected her supplies and opened the door to leave, Shaikh “grabbed her butt,” according to the summons. “She stated it was not an accident,” an officer wrote.

According to the ticket, Shaikh initially denied touching the woman at all, but then told police two different versions about how he touched the woman.
