3rd Henderson man charged in connection to alleged sexual abuse of female juvenile

A third man has been charged in connection to the alleged sexual abuse of a 15 year old female.

21 year old Martinas Wilkes of Henderson was arrested on a warrant for second degree sexual abuse Friday morning around 11:45, according to a Henderson Police report released today.

The charges stem from an investigation led by Henderson Police on November 7, 2015 when authorities say an officer met with a 16 year old female who stated that she and a 15 year old friend had snuck out of the house in September and went to a home with Wilkes, Jalen Grimes, Anthony Antia and some friends. According to police, the female stated that while she was there she engaged in sexual activity with Wilkes, Grimes and Antia. Police say all three men denied engaging in sexual activity with the girl, who was 15 years old at the time of the incident.

Grimes and Antia were arrested and charged on December 30, 2015 for 3rd degree sexual abuse.

Following his arrest, Wilkes was booked into the Henderson County Detention Center.
