The incident is believed to have occurred during October, 2007," stated a Palm Bay Police press release. "Further investigation revealed Lurken performed oral sex on the child in his home," it added.
In a separate case occurring between July and August 2007, Lurken kissed an 11-year-old girl on the lips "with his eyes closed" in a lewd manner while rubbing her back and stomach, according to the victim's statement.
