(Memphis) 23-year-old Larry Brown is charged with statutory rape.

Brown and a 16-year-old girl were found in a car behind Hamilton High School in South Memphis.

A Memphis Police Officer on routine patrol discovered a Ford Thunderbird just before 1:00 a.m. Saturday morning.

According to the police report, Brown was nude and the 16-year-old victim was in the back seat of the car.

According to the report, the victim told the officer, “We just finished having sex.”

Brown was arrested and charged with statutory rape.

Monday, no one answered at the address Brown said was his home, but a neighbor says he’s seen Brown on more than one occasion, “He kind of keeps to himself. He comes out to clean his car from time to time. Sometimes he’ll wave. He just kind of stays to himself and don’t really associate with nobody in the neighborhood.”

Lincoln Park is right behind Hamilton High School.

Several people who live nearby say they’ve complained to police about suspicious activity in the park at all hours of the night but none wanted to talk about it on camera.

One neighbor, however, has plenty to say about older men taking advantage of younger women, “Don’t matter how old that individual is. You should know that rape is rape. And you should know better than to go out with a young woman and take advantage of her like that.”

Larry Brown is scheduled to be back in court in May.
