He's charged with attacking a 12-year-old and his 15-year-old ex
Baytown---A Baytown 18-year-old is accused of raping two underage girls — a 12-year-old and his 15-year-old ex-girlfriend, officials said.
The arrest last week of Shawn Russell Holcomb followed an investigation that began in August when the younger girl told a family friend that she had been attacked on a fishing pier near her home.
According to the criminal complaint filed against him, Holcomb exposed himself to the girl before choking and raping her.
The girl's family friend later confronted Holcomb about the allegations against him, officials said.
"The defendant admitted to him that he had sexual intercourse with (the 12 year old) but said she had wanted sex," the complaint stated.
The family friend, who called Baytown police, told Holcomb the girl was only 12 regardless of whether she had consented.
"When he pointed this out, the defendant did not care and only became cocky," according to the complaint.
