Carvajal-Hernandez managed Guacamoles Mexican Grill, according to the business's Facebook page. The crime happened between March 12 and March 21 at the restaurant, located on Union Road in Gastonia, according to the report.

"We regret having to inform all our friends that by force...we had to close our restaurant indefinitely, we appreciate all your support and collaboration during these three years," Guacamoles Mexican Grill posted on their Facebook page.

Carvajal-Hernandez is being charged with immigration and two felony counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

The restaurant's page appears that it has since been removed from Facebook.
