On Thursday September 8th BSO Deputies responded to a call by concerned neighbors regarding a man that appeared to be trying to entice children to come to him. The incident occurred near the corner of N.E. 38th St and NE 3rd Avenue soon after students at Oakland Park Elementary had been let out of school.
Frederick Muller Convicted Sex Offender Arrested
After BSO identified the man, Frederick Muller, they discovered he was a registered sex offender. Muller had failed to register as a sex offender and to renew his driver's license with his current address. This gave BSO deputies grounds to arrest Muller. He is currently at Broward County jail held on a $10,500 bond.
Records show that Muller was convicted in Broward County of lewd and lascivious battery on a child between the ages of 12 to 15. He had been release from prison less than three months ago on June 27, 2022.
If You Know Something Contact BSO
At this time, BSO has not been able to discern if there were any victims as a result last Thursday’s incident because nobody has come forward.
If you or anyone you know was victimized by Muller or has information regarding any the reported incident, please contact BSO Detective Marlene Schnakenberg at 954-321-4789 or submit a tip through the SaferWatch app. If you prefer to remain anonymous, contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or online at browardcrimestoppers.org or by calling **TIPS (8477) from any cellphone in the United States.
