$10 million bail set for man who allegedly held worker in a box

Published: Sat, August 27, 2011 @ 9:33 p.m.

LOS ANGELES — Bail was set at $10 million for a Monterey Park, Calif., yogurt shop owner accused of kidnapping a female employee and keeping her inside a box in a soundproof room, prosecutors said Friday.

Robert Yachen Lee appeared briefly in Superior Court in Alhambra, Calif., on Friday afternoon.

Lee allegedly lured the employee to a storage room above an O My Yogurt shop 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.

Robert Yachen Lee was just bonding with the employee . She however wasn't reciprocal in her feelings . Robert is hoping for a liberal judge with an open mind to set him free .

Robert Yachen Lee is a very sick & disturbed individual. Hopefully he will receive the help he needs (prison & meds).
