WTF: Yogurt Store Owner Kidnapped a Female Worker and Kept Her Inside a Box

When you go to the Yelp page for Monterey Park’s O’ My Yogurt & O’ My Buns, one Yelper shares a photo of a “Wall of Shame” where the business owner posts photos from his security camera of people who didn’t pay for their frozen yogurt.

Based on a report by the L.A. Times, the person who needs to be on the Wall of Shame is yogurt store owner Robert Yachen Lee (I’m going to call him “The Yogurt Creep”), who is facing kidnapping and attempted murder charges for abducting a female employee and keeping her inside a box in a soundproof room, according to prosecutors.

Robert Yachen Lee alleged lured the employee to a storage room above O My Yogurt on south Atlantic Boulevard early Wednesday, knocked her unconscious and then — after removing her clothing and dressing her in an adult diaper — placed her in a box, authorities said.

The victim told authorities that when she came to, she was bound with tape and had a collar around her neck.

Prosecutors believe Lee planned the kidnapping, because the storage room had recently been soundproofed.

The woman was able to free herself and escape to a nearby optometrist’s office, where she alerted police.

Bail is set at $10 million. O’ My, indeed!

About jozjozjoz

jozjozjoz is a taiwanese-american gal who lives and blogs underneath the hollywood sign and who doesn’t clean her fishtank unless the fish starts to do the backstroke. she is also able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but cannot stop from bumping into door handles, cabinet doors, and anything else that protrudes or has a sharp edge. she does not run with scissors for this same reason. she can pet the fur off a dog but don’t ask her to go anywhere near a horse. or a moth. or a roach. her dealings with L.A.’s finest (aka the parking violations department) are legend, as are her giant sneezes. Other than the two too many joz’s, jozjozjoz is a perfectly normal, relatively sane individual who defies the odds, reaches for the stars, and carries moonbeams home in a jar. She’d rather be a fish… but not in her own dirty fishtank.
