A 24-year-old man is facing multiple felony charges after he reportedly molested a teenage girl who slept at his apartment.
Joshua Brown was taken into custody on Friday following a 13-month police investigation into the allegations.
Officials say the girl who was 13 at the time, spent the night on the couch at Brown’s apartment at the Integra Woods.
At some point during the night, she woke up to Brown naked with one of her hands placed on his genitalia.
Brown then told the teen not to tell anyone what happened.
Once authorities were notified about the incident, they used several different techniques to get evidence from the case. Once they had enough evidence, Brown was taken into custody.
“I commend our Major Case Unit for pursuing this case from the time we got the call until this pervert was in handcuffs,” said Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly. “These are hard cases to build but we have an amazing Major Case Unit that uses every investigative tool possible to build strong cases. This pervert is now at the Green Roof Inn where he won’t be able to prey on children.”
Brown is facing two felony counts of lewd and lascivious molestation to a minor and lewd and lascivious exhibition to a minor.
He has since posted his $100,000 bond.
