Richard Michael Parkhurst, 29, was convicted in court of sneaking into a woman’s home and sucking on her toes while she slept on her couch in October 2017

A homeless man who claimed to be a god-like, mythical figure sent down from heaven to seduce women was convicted of breaking into a woman’s home and sucking on her toes.

Richard Michael Parkhurst, 29, was convicted in California court of a felony burglary count and three misdemeanors, including one count of peeking into an inhabited building and two counts of indecent exposure.

He was also charged with a felony count of assault with the intent to commit a sex offense, but jurors were undecided on a verdict.

Prosecutors eventually dismissed this count, according to Patch.

On October 15, 2017, Parkhurst allegedly exposed himself to a woman in the Southern California town of Seal Beach.

According to court papers, when he noticed the woman walking her dog, he said to her: ‘Nice dog.’

He then added: ‘I am walking mine, too.’

At this point, he is alleged to have exposed himself.

Later that day, Parkhurst is alleged to have snuck into the woman’s home.

‘She was sleeping on her couch and woke up when she realized he was sucking on her toes,’ according to prosecutors.

DNA evidence confirmed that Parkhurst was the culprit, according to Patch.

The next day, Parkhurst is alleged to have looked into the mail slot of a nearby home.

Two days earlier, he is alleged to have passed by the home and told a man who lives there that his girlfriend is attractive.

After he was arrested and taken to a local jail in Seal Beach, Parkhurst is alleged to have touched himself while staring at the girlfriend.

After he was transferred to Orange County Jail, Parkhurst allegedly passed a perverse note to a jail guard.

Parkhurst’s lawyer told Patch that his client is ‘delusional’ and suffers from mental illness.

‘Mr. Parkhurst developed a delusion that he was a Zeus-like god who was sent down from the stars to seduce women,’ his lawyer wrote.

‘It was his destiny to seduce women, and they would willingly have his children.

‘Mr. Parkhurst believes that is progeny will create a super race that will save the planet.’

In court papers, the lawyer claimed Parkhurst was homeless at the time of his arrest.

The lawyer said Parkhurst’s girlfriend died, he lost his home, and stopped taking medication for schizophrenia.

Soon afterward, Parkhurst ‘began hearing voices emanating from his television, telling him to do things.’

He was even hospitalized at one point, according to the lawyer.

Sentencing for Parkhurst is tentatively scheduled for April 5.
