Man arrested for child enticement after assaulting girls running lemonade stand
WAUKESHA – Two young girls tried to sell lemonade in their quiet neighborhood. They ended up getting more than they bargained for.
The pair, ages 10 and 11, live near University Drive. Monday, they spent their summer vacation day pulling a wagon down their street, selling lemonade to neighbors and friends.
That’s when they met 59-year-old Gregory Davis. Witnesses tell TODAY’S TMJ4 the man pulled up to pair in his car and got out.
His speech slurred, the girls quickly found the man wanted more than what they were selling.
“He started saying, 'you’re so beautiful', and 'I love you', 'you should marry me,'” said the 11-year-old.
The encounter didn’t end there. Davis reportedly pressed on with the girl’s friend.
“He started kissing her, and tried to get close to her lips, and almost did. And I said, 'we need to go back to the house,'” the girl explained.
The girl’s mom is furious.
“We walk our dogs down that path. We have neighbors that we know. It’s totally safe, and you just feel totally violated in your own neighborhood,” the woman tells TODAY’S TMJ4.
Davis didn’t deny being in the area. In fact, he told police he was drunk at the time. He even admitted to kissing the girl. When asked why, he told detectives she was in love with him.
Davis is now in the Waukesha County Jail. He’s charged with one count of child enticement.
