MONCKS CORNER, SC (WCSC) - Police arrested a St. Stephen man Wednesday morning accused of sending over 600 sexually explicit text messages to a 13-year-old girl.

Moncks Corner Police Department officers say 43-year-old Richard Eric Davis sent images of his genitals to a Berkeley Middle School student between April 28 and May 1.

According to the incident report, the victim reported the messages from an unknown number to the school resource officer last week, which prompted the investigation. Verizon records indicate the victim made numerous requests for Davis to stop sending the messages and even told him she was a 13-year-old girl, but the messages continued.

Police said when they arrested Davis outside his home Wednesday, he admitted to sending the images and text to the girl.

He is charged with disseminating obscene material to a person under the age of 18. Davis is being held at the Hill Finklea Detention Center.
