A homeless man who broke into a woman’s home and sucked on her toes as she slept faces years in jail . Richard Michael Parkhurst, 29, claimed to be a god-like, mythical man sent from heaven to seduce women.
But he was today convicted of one count of burglary , one charge of peeking into an inhabited building and two counts of indecent exposure.
Jurors in Seal Beach, California, gave a not guilty verdict on a charge of assault with the intent to commit a sex offense after hearing twisted Parkhurst exposed himself at a woman walking her dog.
Later that day in October 2017, the burglar snuck into another woman’s house and sucked her toes.
Damning DNA evidence confirmed Parkhurst was the culprit.
“She was sleeping on her couch and woke up when she realized he was sucking on her toes,” prosecutors said.
Parkhurst, originally from Seal Beach, California, was homeless at the time, the court was informed.
He was seen peeking into other homes in the same area that day.
After his arrest, warped Parkhurst touched himself while staring at a woman at the police station.
The court was told he passed a note to the jail guard, in which he claimed he was a “Zeus-like god who was sent down from the stars to seduce women”.
Jurors heard how Parkhurst “began hearing voices emanating from his television, telling him to do things” and even spent time in hospital.
He will be sentenced on April 5.
