A restaurant employee in Houston was allegedly caught on camera putting his genitals into open food items, and the investigation that followed resulted in police to find images and videos of child pornography on his phone, according to authorities.

On April 4, a manager at Kulture Restaurant in Houston called the Harris County Sheriff’s Office and showed authorities a video of 27-year-old Othello Larenzo Holmes allegedly putting his penis into food, according to court documents obtained by KPRC.

According to the documents, iInvestigators spoke with Holmes, who admitted to putting his penis into jelly, saying “he had a sexual urge, however, he stopped himself before he ejaculated.”

Holmes, the documents claim, told officials that he has a problem with sexual urges and needs help.

Based on the alleged admission, authorities said Holmes was charged with indecent assault and a further investigation was launched.

On April 15, Holmes gave written permission for police to search his cell phone. Investigators allegedly found more than 100 images and five videos of child pornography, including one video showing Holmes fondling his genitals while lying next to an unidentified child, believed to be about 6 years old, according to the documents.

The alleged videos on Holmes’ phone included children ranging in age from infancy to teens and showed them engaged in various sex acts, court documents claim.

“We kept investigating this person. And, boy, I’m glad we did, because we got a subpoena for his phone, and we found some really horrible things on his phone," Precinct 1 Constable Alan Rosen said. "We found child pornography, and we are fearful that he potentially may have and at some point, molested young children.”


Rosen said the restaurant was “very proactive” and the staff cleaned and sanitized the kitchen and threw out items after shutting the restaurant down to the public.

The restaurant told authorities that Holmes was immediately fired and they suspected he may have contaminated food in retaliation for a demotion.
