Man accused of raping teens outside shelter
WILTON MANORS, Fla. (WSVN) -- Police have arrested a man who allegedly sexually assaulted two teenage girls outside a South Florida shelter.
Thirty-year-old Brian Denby was arrested after arriving from a cruise Monday morning.
According to police, Denby was walking around outside of Kids in Distress, on Jan. 7. Detectives said he started talking to two teen girls who live at the shelter. He then hopped the fence and had sex with the two girls.
The girls reported the incident, but didn't know his name. The shelter provides help to children who are abuse victims.
Last week, police released his sketch and a few days ago a tip came in to police, and officers were able to identify Denby.
Denby was on vacation on a Royal Caribbean cruise in the Bahamas. The cruise arrived back to PortMiami on Monday, and Wilton Manors Police arrested Denby. "On Monday morning, when the boat docked, they met with federal officials at the Port of Miami. They boarded the ship and made an effective arrest without incident," said Wilton Manors Police Sgt. Charles Powers.
Reporter: "What was his reaction when he saw officers on that cruise ship coming to arrest him?"
Sgt. Powers: "They entered the room, he was completely surprised."
According to police, Denby confessed to the crime. He is being held at the Broward County Jail with no bond.
Police have charged Denby with several counts of lewd and lascivious battery.
