An HIV-positive Sunrise man was arrested after police say they were told by a 15-year-old boy that the pair had sex.

Pembroke Pines Police arrested 30-year-old Keith Sumlin, also known as Keyoko, on Wednesday.

He faces lewd and lascivious charges as well as attempted second-degree murder and criminal transmission of the HIV virus, according to jail records. He was held on $280,000 bond.

Authorities said they were alerted to the alleged crime after the victim’s mother told police Sumlin had possibly molested her son. The teen then revealed to authorities that the pair had sex, Pembroke Pines Police said.

Judge John Hurley said the court was concerned about the man’s “intentional behavior” and for the alleged victim and the safety of the community.

“It seems like there was a high degree of recklessness, at a minimum, based on your alleged behavior,” he said.

Hurley added that there were several alleged Facebook videos of Sumlin engaging in “unsafe” sexual conduct and later bragging about it.

Anyone who had interaction or a relationship with him is asked to contact police 954-431-2200.
