Clifford Murray, 39, is accused of kidnapping and lewd conduct. Authorities said he lured one of two girls playing near Florida Mall back to his apartment.
The 13-year-old, who was looking for turtles with her friend, said she went with Murray because he said he would give her money.
When the girl went to Murray’s Landstreet Road apartment, investigators say Murray performed a lewd act in front of her and asked if she would join him. The girl told him, “No thank you,” and left the apartment, according to investigators.
Murray has two prior child molestation convictions. He’s now being held without bond at the Orange County Jail.
