Century Man Accused Of Child Molestation At Local Apartment Complex

July 11, 2018

A Century man has been arrested for molesting a teen girl at a local apartment complex.

Shelton O’Brian Mitchell, 34, was charged with lewd and lascivious molestation on a child under 16.

The victim told authorities that an apartment complex resident she knew as “Brian” had touched her inappropriately.  She said Mitchell offered her $150 “for 15 minutes for just one time and I will pay you for six months,” according to an Escambia County Sheriff’s Office report. The girl told deputies that she thought she was going to be paid just to “hang out” with Mitchell. She said that she was sitting with Mitchell on the stairs of the Century Park Apartments on Second Street when he texted her phone stating he wanted to perform a sexual act.

She said she refused multiple advances, including an offer of $300, before Mitchell reached over and touched her inappropriately through her clothing, the arrest report states.

Mitchell told deputies he “always hangs out” with the victim on the stairs of the apartment complex, according to the report. He denied touching the girl, and told deputies that he was confused and thought he was texting someone else.

    so many time? It should be every single time “where is the parents?” Especially this day and age! Our responsibility as a parent is to be aware at all times where our UNDERAGED children are. So many things can be prevented if parents were MORE involved!

    So many times it is “Where is the mother, where is the father?” This time I’m just going to say thank God someone taught her how to react when someone approached her in this manner and reach out for help instead of being afraid or ashamed. This could have ended more tragically.
