Miami-Dade Police’s Special Victims Bureau arrested a Miami man and charged him with multiple counts of armed sexual battery, robbery and kidnapping after he allegedly attempted to rob and then raped three teenagers on two separate occasions.

Erick Levant Wilson, 46, was arrested Friday for an incident on Aug. 22 where, according to police, he rushed two teenage girls, aged 16 and 18, who were walking in Southridge Park in the 1100 block of Southwest 192nd Street at about 8 p.m. and pulled out a gun asking them for money.

When the girls told him they had no money, he forced them at gunpoint to the bleachers of a nearby football field and made them perform oral sex on him. He then performed oral sex on the teens and forced them to perform the act on each other. Wilson also allegedly raped the two victims.

Wilson then forced the girls to go to a baseball field where he performed oral sex on one of the victims and raped her second time.

The police report describes another incident on Jun. 5, also around 8 p.m., involving a 17-year-old girl whom he also raped and forced to perform oral sex on him at gunpoint in Caribbean Elementary Park.

According to the police report, Wilson admitted to the victims’ allegations. Wilson has been charged with four counts of armed sexual battery, two counts of armed robbery and two counts of armed kidnapping.
