LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The lawyer representing a former Little Caesars employee is asking Henderson Police to revisit a sexual assault investigating involving a semi-aroused employee.

Attorney Peter Isso provided 13 Investigates a letter which he addressed to Henderson Police Chief LaTesha Watson last month asking for her to reopen the criminal investigation.

The letter described the surveillance video and camera police relied upon to close the case as being "obstructed to the point of making a positive identification nearly impossible and contained no date or time stamp."

"There's a really high number of red flags," said Isso.

Isso questioned why Kayla's verbal allegations were not enough to move ahead with a criminal charge.

13 Investigates first reported the civil lawsuit and allegations in November last year.

"I was bent over and he walked behind me and rubbed his groin against my butt," said Kayla Haun, a former Little Caesars employee in a Nov. 2018 interview.

A Henderson Police spokesperson tells 13 Investigates the case will not be re-opened unless any new investigative leads become available.

Isso said he will appeal the decision to the Clark County District Attorney's Office for an additional review.

The owner of the Little Caesar's and the man involved with the allegations have no comment but will defend themselves in court.
