KENNER, La. – A man is jail Tuesday after police say he had a sexual relationship with his tenant’s teen daughter.
Kenner Police arrested Kenneth Bryant, 46, after Children’s Hospital called them. Police said a 16-year-old told the hospital she was coerced by Bryant to perform oral sex on him. Police added Bryant told the victim he was aware of her parent’s financial problems, and he would make the problems go away if the girl complied.
The teen complained Bryant threatened to kick the family out if she did not do as he told, police said.
Text messages were also recovered from the teen’s cell phone, which police said showed the girl and Bryant arguing over sexual relations.
Bryant faces charges of carnal knowledge of a juvenile and molestation of a juvenile.
