A man arrested in Redwood City on Monday morning after expressing sexual interest in a toddler pleaded not guilty to felony charges of annoying or molesting a child in San Mateo County Superior Court on Tuesday.

David Donald Lewis, 46, was going through garbage cans near the Redwood City Main Library at 1044 Middlefield Road when a man walked by with his 2-year-old daughter around 10:35 a.m.

Lewis allegedly asked if he could touch the child, at which time her father called the police.

Lewis later told officers that he “thought the little girl was cute and wanted to touch her,” prosecutors said.

“I was thinking about sex a little bit,” Lewis allegedly said. “She’s sexy.”

Lewis has a prior felony conviction from 2015 for annoying or molesting a child. He remains in custody on $50,000 bail and returns to court on Jan. 31.

An attorney from San Mateo County’s Private Defender Program has not yet been appointed to his case, and no one was available to comment on his behalf.

    So… asking a man a question – however creepy and inappropriate it may be – is a child sex crime.

    You can’t make this stuff up!

    If it were my child I Would have made sure that he never had the motor skills to ask that question to another man, or lady ever again.

    Spider, the reality is you’d be the bad guy and spend more time and money locked up than those sickos protected by Liberal laws.
