A man with a long criminal history broke into a Christian radio station in Pine Hills area of metro Orlando Monday morning and performed a sex act in front of the program host while threatening to rape her, according to a story posted at orlandosentinel.com.

The incident happened about 6 a.m. while listeners tuned in to the live religious programming.
