Need another good reason to NOT visit the Bay Area. Well here you go.
A homeless man who allegedly asked a father if he could touch his 2-year-old daughter and later told an officer he thought the girl was “sexy” has pleaded not guilty to one felony count of annoying or molesting a child, according to the Mercury News.
The encounter occurred near the Redwood City Main Library. The suspect, identified as 46-year-old David Lewis, was rummaging through trash cans when the father and daughter walked past him.
Prosecutors said Lewis asked the father if he could touch his daughter. The father told him “no” and called Redwood City police.
Lewis allegedly told an officer, “I thought the little girl was cute and wanted to touch her,” and as they were walking to the officer’s patrol car, he spontaneously said, “I was thinking about sex a little bit. She’s sexy.”
According to the Mercury News, this pervert was previously convicted of a misdemeanor count of annoying or molesting a child.
