Maximinio Castill-Murcia, 41, is accused of using his ice cream truck to lure young girls inside, where he was performing a sexual act on himself.

Kennewick police said Murcia allegedly invited a 13-year-old girl and her 7-year-old friend into his truck as she was buying ice cream near Monopoly Park Wednesday afternoon. The next day she told officials at her school Murcio was masturbating. When she noticed, she threw her ice cream at him and fled.

Mike Blatman, Kennewick police spokesman said additional charges are pending against the man.

Authorities believe there may be a similar incident related to Murcio and his truck; citizens are asked to contact police with any information they may have at 509-628-0333.
