    In the video, Davis engages in conversation with the girl, telling her his private parts are "itchy" as he starts rubbing them, according to the report.

    In a surveillance video from a Burlington Coat Factory store in Hialeah, Davis was seen by a store security guard and was captured on surveillance tape following three young girls through the store, the report said.

    When police examined Davis' phone, it contained more than 80 videos of Davis engaging with young female children, all under age 12, in various stores, the report said.

    Davis’ next court date is June 15. It was not immediately known if he had an attorney.
