Charges: Man arrested after sexually harassing teen girl on bus
TACOMA, Wash. -- A 21-year-old man was arrested Tuesday and charged with a number of crimes after reportedly sexually harassing a 15-year-old girl on a Pierce County bus.
According to the charging documents filed Wednesday with Pierce County Superior Court, Jaycob Brown sat next to the victim and repeatedly touched her leg with his leg despite her attempts to slide further away from him.
Brown told the victim she would "look good naked in bed" and asked her age before she moved to the back of the bus to get away from him, according to the charging documents.
Brown reportedly followed the victim as she changed seats multiple times to get away from him.
The victim eventually asked an adult woman if she could sit next to her to get away from Brown, and Brown left the bus. On his way off, Brown gave the victim the finger and said, "The next time I see you, I'm going to [expletive] kill you," according to the charging documents.
Officers stopped Brown and another man as they were leaving the bus station. Brown, who already had a warrant for his arrest stemming from another incident, reportedly tried to escape officers but was arrested.
According to the charging documents, Brown yelled profanities at the officers and claimed all he did to the victim was "flip her off."
He has been charged with felony harassment, unlawful transit conduct and resisting arrest.
