SANTA ANA — An Orange County man was arrested Tuesday morning, accused of ejaculating into his female co-worker’s water bottle on two separate occasions.
Michael Kevin Lallana, 31, of Fullerton, is charged with two misdemeanor counts each of releasing an offensive material in a public place and assault, with sentencing allegations for committing a crime for sexual gratification.
If convicted, he faces three months to three years in jail with mandatory sex offender registration.
Lallana was released on $500 bail and is set to be arraigned September 14, 2010 in Santa Ana.
The incident happened on January 14, 2010, at the Northwestern Mutual Mortgage Company in Newport Beach, according to the Orange County District Attorney’s office.
Investigators say Lallana entered the victim’s office and deposited his semen into a water bottle that was on his co-worker’s desk.
The defendant is accused of leaving the semen-filled water bottle on the victim’s desk which she drank when she returned to her office.
The unidentified victim, who ws unaware of the bottle’s contents, drank the contaminated water. She threw it away after feeling sick, investigators say.
Three months later, the victim and six other employees, including the defendant, were transferred to the Northwestern Mutual Mortgage Company’s Orange branch. That’s where a second incident occurred, according to officials.
On April 9, 2010, Lallana is accused of assaulting the same victim by depositing his ejaculation into another water bottle that the victim left on her desk. The victim took a sip from the bottle, felt sick. She decided to send the specimen to a private lab to be tested.
The lab contacted her and told her the water bottle contained semen, police said.
The victim then notified the Orange Police Department .
