LA man accused of 'foot fetish' crime against boy
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A 19-year-old man has pleaded not guilty to charges he indulged a self-described "foot fetish" with a boy at the Los Angeles roller rink where he worked.
The Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/OGsSMI ) reports Julian Christopher Flores is charged with one count each of false imprisonment and attempted lewd act on a child.
The newspaper cites court documents that say Flores admitted taking up to 200 young boys into a maintenance room at Northridge Skateland, having them remove their socks and rub their feet on his hands or face to sexually arouse himself.
An affidavit says Flores' statement to police came after one boy told his grandmother about an encounter in the maintenance room.
Police are attempting to identify victims who were Skateland patrons from May through December of last year.
