East Naples, FL (December 26, 2018) – Police have arrested an 18-year-old man after he tried to coerce a 14-year-old girl to have sex with him in a threatening manner. He has now been charged.

The man, 18-year-old Brian Belony, was accused of using a gun to threaten and coerce a 14-year-old girl to have sex with him.

Belony was arrested two days ago for possession of a weapon by a delinquent, false imprisonment, and aggravated assault without intent to kill. The incident happened when a probation officer showed up at Belony’s residence and the young girl answered the door with fear on her face. The girl told police that she feared for her safety, as well as her younger brother’s. However, Belony had threatened to cause her harm if she spoke with police. She said Belony also used the same weapon to coerce her to have sex with him.

The girl told the Department of Children and Families that she did not have sex with Belony even after he threatened her. Police took possession of the weapon that he used to administer the crime.
