JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Seventeen year-old Euquarian Garner is behind bars after sexually assaulting a teenage girl and robbing her along with two other young girls.

The alleged sexual assault happened on June 20 at an abandoned house in the 3100 block of Bilgray Drive in south Jackson.

Hinds County Sheriff Malcolm McMillin says Garner forced the girl into the house and sodomized her at gunpoint.

Prior to the assault, Garner approached the girl and two other teens outside the house. He robbed the girls of their cell phones and money.

Sheriff McMillian says other victims may be out there. "We think there possibly are other victims who haven't come forward who may have told somebody and they weren't believed, so what we do is appeal to anybody who had a situation similar to this."

Garner is charged with one count of kidnapping, one count of sexual assault and three counts of armed robbery. He's also the suspect in other crimes.
