An 18-year-old Scottsbluff man has been arrested after telling police he had sex with a 15-year-old girl.

Brandon Bowles was arrested Sunday evening following an investigation by Scottsbluff Police.

Investigators say the 15-year-old girl was drunk at a party over the weekend, and woke up to Bowles having sex with her. When officers went to Bowles house, he admitted to having the sexual encounter with the girl, but told them it was consensual.

He was arraigned on a Class 2 Felony charge of 1st Degree Sexual Assault on an Incompetent Monday afternoon, with bond set at $40,000 at 10%.

Editors note: The original version of the story stated that Bowles was 19 years old; which he will not be until December
