Cain Velasquez was arrested on attempted murder charges Monday for allegedly shooting at a man in Morgan Hill, Calif. Now we have more information about the alleged incident.

Both the San Jose Mercury News and NBC Bay Area report that the man Velasquez shot at is Harry Eugene Goularte.

Goularte, 43, was charged last week with one felony count of a lewd and lascivious act with a child under the age of 14. Goularte was let out on his own recognizance and granted supervised release.

Goularte hosts a daycare run by his mother. Both outlets report that a family member of Velasquez is one of the alleged victims.

Goularte apparently denied the allegation.

According to NBC Bay Area, “the statement of fact written by the investigating detective states the victim reported the abuse occurred in the day care bathroom, and the victim saw other children go in there with Goularte as well, but that Goularte denied any wrongdoing, saying he once just helped a child put his pants on correctly.”

Goularte and his father were in the car that Velasquez allegedly shot at. Velasquez allegedly hit Goularte’s father with the fired shot.

Velasquez, 39, was a two-time UFC heavyweight champion.
