Conway man facing sexual assault, child porn charges

An arrest warrant was issued Monday against a Conway man charged with fourth-degree sexual assault and 10 counts of computer child porn.

 

The Conway Police Department was notified of an inappropriate email thread between Chandler Brown, 25, and an underage girl after the girl’s mother found the messages on July 30.

She said the offense happened in 2016 and that she learned Brown had been communicating with her daughter through text messages and social media and email conversations.

The girl’s email was left open on a household laptop when her mother located the inappropriate messages.

“She said an email thread caught her eye and she clicked on it,” the affidavit reads. “The emails were exchanged between her daughter and [Brown’s email address]. She later learned the emails were exchanged between her daughter and her son’s [then] 24 year old friend Chandler Brown.”

There were explicit photos of both parties shared within the thread, according to the affidavit.

The woman told police the exchange occurred before her daughter turned 16 years old.

When questioned by police, the girl admitted to sending “photographs of her buttocks and other bare parts of her body” to Brown.

The girl admitted to performing oral sex on Brown the first time the two were alone together, noting she felt pressured to do so.

“She said it was late at night and he told her to come outside to see him,” one officer wrote in his report after speaking with the girl. “They stayed in the area by her house, which is close to a park … [T]hey talked for a little bit before Chandler asked her to give him oral sex. [The victim] said he tried to do more but her pants were difficult to get off so nothing else happened. [She] advised she was not completely in agreeance with what Chandler requested of her, but she was also not forced.”

She told police she was promised “‘some form’ of a relationship if she did sexual acts with him,” according to the affidavit.

The second time she was alone with Brown was when the two had intercourse, according to her interview with police.

She said she walked across the street to Don Pepe’s after school one day and Brown picked her up and took her to his apartment.

Brown told her not to bring anyone else with her and said “if she wanted anything [sexual] to happen she would have to do it herself,” the report states. However, “Chandler eventually came up behind her, put his head on her shoulder, and started touching her.”

The officer asked the victim if she regretted what happened between her and Brown. She said she did, noting she felt used by him.

The girl’s mother gave CPD consent to extract evidence from her daughter’s phone and provided officers with the inappropriate email threads.

Online records show felony charges were filed and an arrest warrant was issued again Brown on Monday.

As of press time Monday he had not yet been arrested on the aforementioned charges.
