Christopher Brown Accused in Sexual Assault of His 17-Year-Old Cousin/Ex-Girlfriend

Mesa police arrested 18-year-old Walmart employee Christopher Brown last night, after allegedly sexually assaulting his 17-year-old ex-girlfriend at a children's amusement park.

Not only is the girl Brown's ex-girlfriend, she's also his cousin, police say.

According to court documents obtained by New Times, the girl met her younger siblings at the indoor amusement park for children yesterday, where Brown was also present.

Police say the two ran into each other as the girl was heading to the bathroom, and Brown pushed her into an office-type room, locking the door behind them.

Brown was questioning the girl about their "former sexual relationship," but she refused to answer him, police say.

Brown forced the girl around by pulling on her freshly pierced belly-button ring, and -- to spare you the graphic details -- proceeded to sexually assault her, according to court documents.

The girl told police Brown had pulled a similar stunt behind a pizza joint in Mesa back in September, using a pressure point under her ear to force her to perform oral sex on him.

The only admission from Brown that made it into the police report was that he said he forced the girl onto her knees during that incident because it "feels better."

Brown was jailed on charges of sexual assault, sexual abuse, and kidnapping.
