A Kenai man has been arrested after police accused him of sexually abusing a 15-year-old girl.
Joshua Brown, 20, was found by police in a car at the end of Spur View Drive in Kenai with the girl, according to court documents. The two were found just before 1 a.m. and while Brown didn’t have a shirt on, he and the girl denied that any sexual activity had taken place.
Brown was allowed to leave the scene and the girl was taken home, according to the police report, however her father later said he wanted her to be interviewed by the Child Advocacy Center.
During her interview, she told officials that she had been sexually active with Brown several times and that he knew she was 15 years old.
Brown was later interviewed by Kenai Police and admitted that he knew how old the victim was and that he’d been having a sexual relationship with her, according to the affidavit.
On May 5, Brown was arrested and charged with one count of sexual abuse of a minor, a class B felony. If convicted he faces a presumptive penalty range of 5-15 years and up to 99 years in prison.
