Date: August 28, 2002
Time: 2345
Place of Occurrence: 1430 Avon Lane, apt. 427, North Lauderdale

Suspect(s):

  • Kevin Brunner, 38, 8/18/64, male, 1430 Avon Lane, apt. 427, North Lauderdale

Description of Incident:

Broward Sheriff's Office detectives believe a recently released convict, who fondled a young girl and admitted to having sex with another, may have victimized others.

BSO Sex Crimes detectives arrested Kevin Brunner late Wednesday night at his place of employment on the corner of Rock Island and McNab Roads in North Lauderdale. Brunner, who was released from prison on May 3, 2002, now faces two counts of lewd and lascivious molestation and one count of lewd and lascivious conduct.

The incident occurred on August 27th, sometime between 4:30 p.m. and 11 p.m. The 10-year-old victim said Brunner touched her on her leg, buttocks, and private area while she was visiting a friend at his North Lauderdale apartment, located in the 1400 block of Avon Lane. The young victim told detectives Brunner also asked her to watch a pornographic movie, an allegation Brunner denied.

During questioning, Brunner did not admit to touching the 10-year-old girl inappropriately. Instead, he said he put his arms around her while the two were in his bedroom and he tickled her as she sat on the couch in the living room. Brunner also told investigators that he had sex with the victim’s 17-year-old sister.

BSO Sex Crimes detectives believe Brunner may have had sex with other underage girls or committed other sex crimes. Anyone who believes Brunner may have victimized their child is urged to call BSO Sex Crimes Det. Joseph Harris at (954) 321-4240 or call Broward Crime Stoppers at (954) 493-TIPS.
