Nguyen didn’t respond to any of the reporters’ questions.
The 37-year-old was arrested Tuesday, a day after surveillance cameras in the Azalea Park neighborhood of Orlando showed him approach a child, touch their shoulders and face, and attempt to lure the child into his SUV, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office previously said.
Nguyen allegedly called the child “cute” and offered to give them a ride to school, according to an arrest report obtained by the station. The report said he told deputies that the boy reminded him of his brother, who reportedly died years earlier, and didn’t understand what he did wrong.
Detectives said they are concerned there may be more victims.
Last year, a parent reportedly called authorities after Nguyen allegedly approached a 13-year-old and offered to give the child a ride to school, local news outlets reported.
Investigators are working to determine whether the suspect targeted any other victims and asked the public to call Crimeline at 1-800-423-8477 with any information.
