What? This Guy Raped A 14-Year-Old?

The Harris County Sheriff's Office has announced the arrest of Michael Alexander Chenault, 23, for breaking into a house in the northwest suburbs last week and raping a 14-year-old girl at knifepoint.

He was arrested after a brief struggle yesterday after he was seen riding a bike near Willowbrook; surveillance video had caught him using a credit card stolen from the girl's home at a Walmart shortly after the rape.

He's innocent until proven guilty, of course. But that mugshot....

The whole goatee attempt, the insolent look from the eyes, whatever the hell's going on with the eyebrows....Let's just say we wouldn't let this guy near our children.

Not that that would matter, since he allegedly broke into a house at 4 a.m. to get to one anyway.

Chenault, of Cypress, is currently being held in jail without bond. The HCSO is having a press conference on the quick arrest later today.
