A 16-year-old Matanzas High School student was arrested Monday night on a charge of felony second-degree sexual battery on a 14-year-old girl in connection to an incident that occurred in a stairwell at the school earlier in the day, according to a Flagler County Sheriff’s Office press release.

The victim told Sheriff’s Office deputies that around 9:45 a.m., she and the teenager, D’Shawn Hosang, of Palm Coast, were kissing in the stairwell when the boy forced her to perform a sex act on him, the report states.

The victim told deputies he then forced her to have sex with him.

Detectives interviewed the teen who denied having sex with the victim, but admitted to meeting the girl in the stairwell, where the alleged sexual activity occurred.

Text messages between the teens shortly after the incident led detectives to file charges against Hosang.

He was arrested at 5 p.m., after questioning at the Sheriff’s Office’s Investigative Services Division.

Hosang was booked into the Flagler County Inmate Facility and then transferred to the Youth Services Division, in Daytona Beach. He was additionally charged with violation of probation.

  • I am so saddened by the state of the world. Don't you think its time to place responsibility for our children where the true responsibility lays ? As long as we continue to look outside and all around the box, these tragedies will continue. The gun laws, the school security,ect. Why do we have such angry,violent children ? I have a son at Matanzas High. He will not rape, nor be accusedof rape, he will not take a gun from our home and kill innocent children and adults. I know this because I know my son. We have meals together, pray together, talk about his interest, his friends. Prayer was ban from schools, 9/11 tragedy,schools gathered on lawns in prayer. How sad it takes such tragedy to bring us together to support each other. Iam far from parent of the year,I am simply this, A PARENT. It is our responsibility to teach,nurture,love, set examples of right from wrong. Responsibility lies with us.
