BROWN DEER, WI -- A man has been arrested for sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy in Brown Deer, Wisconsin. According to WITI-TV, the incident happened in the bushes of the vacant building on July 19th.

Jermarro Dantzler, 37, was identified after sending a friend request to the teen on Facebook a month later.

The victim said he was walking home when Dantzler approached him with a gun in hand. The boy thought he was being robbed until he was pulled into the bushes, strip searched, and brutally assaulted.

Police say Dantzler asked the victim where he went to school and if he had weapons during the violent encounter. In a bizarre twist, Dantzler also threw two $20 bills at the teen before fleeing the scene.

Dantzler's DNA results matched the teen’s rape kit. He was arrested, but is currently out on $5,000 bond. He has been ordered to stay away from anyone under 18 years of age.

This may not be the first time Dantzler has done something like this. Four other men tell WDJT-TV that they had an inappropriate relationship with him while living at a group home he operated.
