A North Carolina man has been charged with misdemeanor assault on a female after he allegedly posed as a podiatry student and sucked a woman’s toes while she was shopping at Walmart.
Michael Brown, a registered sex offender, asked Erika Porras, 40, to try on different pairs of shoes and began sucking on her toes as she changed.
"He said, ‘Follow me to shoe department’" Porras told WCNC.
"He said, ‘I need to take a picture for research,’ and when he did, he stuck her foot in his mouth,” Porras’ daughter told the station. When Porras objected to having her foot in the 31-year-old’s mouth, Brown reportedly offered to buy her groceries.
Lincolnton Police Department investigators arrested Brown on Thursday night. Detective Dennis Harris called the incident “bizarre” and “strange.”
Brown was convicted of breaking into a home and sucking on another woman’s toes in 2001.
