    A Florida man was beaten up after allegedly molesting a child in a McDonald’s parking lot.

    Spencer Keith Joyce, 60, was confronted by the caretaker of a 7-year-old girl he is accused of molesting on Monday at a McDonald’s in Hudson, north of Tampa, according to WTSP.

    Authorities say the caretaker left the child in a car with Joyce while he went inside to get food, but when he saw Joyce molesting the child, the caretaker pulled Joyce from the vehicle and began beating him, according to WTSP.


    Pasco County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrived to find Joyce bloodied and arrested him. He is charged with capital sexual battery and is being held at Land O’ Lakes Detention Center.
