By Staff | Apr 3, 2009

A Cape Coral man is accused of lewd and lascivious behavior involving a 9-year-old girl.
Cape police have charged Donn Ahern, 74, of 5235 Coronado Parkway, Apt. 1, with lewd and lascivious exhibition with a victim younger than 16 years of age.
Ahern remained in the Lee County Jail on $50,000 bond Thursday evening, according to jail booking records.
The victim told her father that Ahern had exposed and touched himself in her presence on multiple occasions, city spokesperson Connie Barron reported. She asked her father sexual questions as well, and her father contacted Cape police with the allegations Feb. 14.
The Lee County Sheriff’s Office served a warrant for Ahern’s arrest following an investigation by the Children’s Advocacy Center and Cape detectives.
Barron said the investigation revealed probable cause for Ahern’s arrest.
