    Prosecutors say the founder of a Northern California startup tech company was arrested and charged with assaulting and sexually abusing a toddler.

    Zain Jaffer, the founder of mobile advertising company Vungle, was also charged with battery of a police officer and emergency personnel.

    The 29-year-old pleaded not guilty to the charges earlier this week in San Mateo County. Jaffer remained in San Mateo County Jail Friday on $300,000 bail. His attorney Daniel Olmos declined to comment.

    San Francisco-based Vungle removed Jaffer as its chief executive Thursday and placed him on indefinite leave.
