Jonathan Davis, a retired chiropractor in Florida, was arrested for stalking and taping little girls. He approached children in Ross and K-Mart in Hollywood and in Burlington Coat Factory in Hialeah. Police say he often made a “pssst” sound to get kids’ attention. He would scratch his privates and say he was “itchy.” He talked to the children, often in inappropriate ways. He tried, unsuccessfully, to get some children to go with him to another part of the store. While he did all this, he recorded the children on his cell phone camera.
Parents were often near the children as this occurred. Some were holding their daughters’ hands or standing within 5 feet of their kids. If a parent approached while Davis was talking to a child, he would lift his cell phone and pretend to talk on it.
Earlier this month, Davis was arrested for committing a lewd act at the K-Mart. He was out on bail soon after that.
On Friday, May 18, he turned himself in and was rearrested on the new charge of “Aggravated Stalking of a Minor Under 16.” He again got bail and was released.
Most of the subjects of Davis’ attention were girls under 12 years old. One was 15, but the youngest was only 5.
Hialeah Detective Felix Mendigutia said, “This is a guy who is brazen. He’s fearless. He’s not afraid to get caught.”
