A manager at a Maple Grove McDonald's has been charged with raping a 14-year-old employee on numerous occasions, including in the restaurant.

Five counts of 1st-degree criminal sexual conduct have been filed against Andrew Albertorio, of Maple Grove, after an alleged series of assaults in December and January.

Albertorio was the night manager of a McDonald's restaurant where his victim, a 14-year-old girl, started working this past summer.

In November, the pair began talking via SnapChat and Albertorio would flirt with her at work, including "attempting to kiss her," the charging documents say. 

The victim told police she would push him away, saying she believed it was wrong because he was her manager and much older than her, but they stayed in contact and discussed having sex.

The girl told Albertorio she didn't want to have sex with him as she wasn't 16 and he would get in trouble.

While he was initially "respectful" of this, Albertorio allegedly cornered her in the cooler of the restaurant and, despite her telling him no, proceeded to rape her. She told police she felt "pressured" into the act.

Over the next month, he assaulted her again in the cooler and in the back room of the restaurant, as well as in his vehicle parked on Bass Lake Road, and his home in Maple Grove.

Often, Albertorio would pay the victim "out of pocket" so she could work late despite her telling him she wasn't supposed to work extra hours because of her age.

The girl also told police that their conversations over SnapChat included the sending of sexual images. Prosecutors say more charges may be filed once an investigation into these communications has been completed.

The criminal complaint doesn't state at which McDonald's restaurant the assaults happened, though the Star Tribune reports it's franchise-owned.
