O'FALLON, Mo. (KMOV.com) -
A man accused of sexually assaulting two minor girls in O'Fallon, Mo. was taken into police custody on Thursday.
Rayshawn Antoine, 20, is facing two separate sexual assault charges against a person less than 14 and a person less than 12.
O'Fallon Police received a report of a sexual assault on a 12-year-old girl in the O'Fallon Lakes Apartment Complex on June 28.
That young victim spoke to News 4
"It was totally unexpected. I’ve never seen the guy in my entire life," she told News 4's Lauren Pozen.
The victim says she has a message for those other young women.
"I remember after it happened, I was thinking no one could ever think or feel what had just happened. I want them to know, I know what they are feeling and I know what they have gone through. It is okay to come forward. It is okay to tell your story.”
On July 3, the O'Fallon Police received another report of an additional sexual assault victim, a 13-year-old girl. That incident also took place at the O'Fallon Lakes Apartment Complex and occurred prior to the original report, police said.
Police say there could be more victims.
Antoine is being held on a $75,000 bond.
If anyone has additional information or there are additional victims, the O'Fallon Police Department urges them to contact Detective McDermott at 636-240-3200 Ext. 5659.
