A fourth teenager came forward this week, saying Homestead High School student Terry Fenelon forced her to engage in sex acts by threatening to tell her family she committed a burglary.

Fenelon, 18, now faces additional charges of sexual battery by coercion and extortion, with the added charge of being armed when he was supposed to have committed the crime. He was arrested Wednesday on the initial charges and remains at the Turner Guilford Knight correction facility without bond.

According to the new arrest complaint filed Thursday, Fenelon contacted the girl who hasn’t been named in September 2013, when she was 13. He used a popular app called KIK Messenger.

Police said he told the girl that if she didn’t have sex with him he would tell her family she was involved in a burglary. The girl told police she performed fellatio and had intercourse with Fenelon.

Then in March 2014, Fenelon contacted the girl again, this time threatening to tell her mother about their previous sexual encounter. The girl said they had intercourse in a car parked outside her home.

Then nine months later in December 2015, the report says, Fenelon used Facebook Messenger to extort money from the girl. He used the same threat, police said, promising to tell her mother of their previous sexual encounters. The girl gave him $55.

Fenelon was originally arrested Wednesday, charged with extorting sex from three teenage girls by threatening to harm their families and post their nude photos online. Police said Fenelon used the same online app KIK Messenger to coerce the teens. Posing as a man named “Dre,” he stalked them at their homes between November and January. They eventually told school administrators.

In one of those instances, police said, Fenelon demanded sex for his cousin “Terry” after he explained to the girl in perfect detail where her 6-year-old niece got off a school bus. The frightened girl eventually told police she had sex with Fenelon behind the school.
