Metro police Wednesday night arrested a convicted sex offender for making sexual advances to an eight-year-old girl last week.
According to police, the girl was walking home from school on Park Avenue near 36th Avenue North when she was approached by Damien Burks.
Burks was convicted in July of four counts of sexual exploitation of a minor after images of child porn were found on a computer at his Winn Avenue home.
In addition to solicitation of a minor, Burks is also charged with violating state law that forbids sex offenders from being within 1,000 feet of any public school.
Park Avenue Elementary is located on Park Avenue between 35th and 36th avenues.
Parents of other children who may have had contact with Burks are urged to contact Metro sex crimes detectives at 615-862-7540.
