Texas man held ex-girlfriend, 15, captive for three months, raped her repeatedly, and threatened to murder her family if she left
Trevion Shields has been charged with aggravated kidnapping in connection to the rape and kidnapping of the victim and is being held on a $100,000 bond.
Authorities have arrested and charged a Texas man who kidnapped a teenager, held her forcibly against her will for three months, and repeatedly raped her in captivity.
The victim, 15, disappeared on January 28 this year outside a business on Westheimer Road, Houston, according to KHOU, with a witness reporting that they saw Trevion Shields, 20, grab her by the arm and take her away.
He took her to his home in the 7900 Block of Westheimer Road and, in the three months that followed, he allegedly raped her multiple times and gave her drugs and alcohol to "numb her."
The 20-year-old was arrested this past Friday, November 8, and charged with aggravated kidnapping in connection to the rape and kidnapping of the victim, who is said to still be in recovery.
Her mother said that she had taken the girl to work with her on the day she was kidnapped and that Shields, her "ex-boyfriend," had approached them and convinced the teen to come with him. She revealed that her daughter was wearing an ankle monitor because he was "harassing her previously and she wanted to keep track [of her daughter] at all times."
The girl told investigators that he took her to Target to cut off the bracelet and that she became pregnant twice by him. She said he threatened to kill her if she terminated the pregnancy and if she ever left him, and that he also threatened to kill or hurt her family.
She said she had tried to escape several times but couldn't do so because he would physically block the door and threaten to murder her and her family, revealing that she finally caught a break when she managed to dial authorities using his phone when he wasn't looking.
Speaking about the case, Harris County Precinct One Constable Alan Rosen said, "This suspect really put the fear of God in his victim. He really said he was going to kill her family. And he would do something to her."
However, Shields' mother, Erica White, insisted the 20-year-old was innocent and that the teen had asked to stay at his house so she could get away from her family.
"My son is) falsely and wrongly accused of something he did not do," she claimed. "So I want to clear his name so the threats can stop. And her mom can pay for what they’re doing for slandering my son. You've been trying to get him down."
Shields is currently being held on a $100,000 bond.
