Texas Man Charged With Raping Escambia Teen He Met On App

June 20, 2022

The Bay Minette Police Department has charged a Texas man with raping a teen from Escambia County, Florida, that he met on a messaging app.

Bay Minette Police responded to a report of suspicious activity taking place in a vehicle at the Walmart parking lot at 701 McMeans Avenue. They found Jack Allen Henrichson, of Orange Grove, Texas, in the vehicle with a child under the age of 16 and determined that the child was in danger.

The Alabama Department of Human Resources discovered that the child was an unreported runaway from Escambia County.

Bay Minette investigators said Henrichson, 23, met the juvenile on the Kik messaging app. After communicating with the juvenile, Henrichson drove from Texas to Pensacola and picked up the child, according to police, before heading to Alabama. For the next four days, Henrichson and the juvenile stayed in Bay Minette until they were found by patrol officers in Walmart parking lot.

Bay Minette Police said he had sexually assaulted the victim at least three times.

Henrichson is charged with one count of second degree rape and two counts of second degree sodomy, plus unlawful possession of brass knuckles. He remained in the Baldwin County Jail without bond Monday morning.

    We shouldn’t assume all kids have responsible, or even caring adults in their lives.

    This is a sad situation. But I wonder why this child’s parents did not report her missing? The article said she was with this man for 4 days. Maybe they need to find out why she was never reported missing. Something just doesn’t add up.

    First of all, why was this child not reported as a runaway? And second of all, this is why we monitor a minors phone! It is our responsibility as parents to protect our children. I’m so glad she was found before her life was taken. But now she’ll suffer emotionally and mentally the rest of her life. That’s on these parents hands. I hope this is a wake up call for all parents. Don’t wait until it’s too late to start checking what’s been downloaded on your child’s phone. If you’re going to put technology in your child’s hands, make sure you do your job and know what they’re using it for! Prayers for this child and what she’s gone through and shame on her parents.

    No one reported this child missing? No one was monitoring her internet activity either. This is a very, very sad situation. These children need to know there are predators everywhere. God save these kids! Good job catching that creep, Deputies!
