A Coral Springs man is charged with fourteen counts of sexual assault by a custodian for repeatedly sexually assaulting and raping his girlfriend’s daughter, according to court papers.
Scott Davis, 48, who the child victim considered her parent, lived with the victim’s mother for eight years in Coral Springs, according to an arrest affidavit filed by Coral Springs Police. Davis allegedly sexually abused the girl dozens of times in 2020 and 2021, police said.
According to the affidavit, investigators obtained surveillance video from a CVS near Coral Ridge Drive and West Sample Road showing Davis buying a pregnancy test for the child and collecting some of his clothes as part of their criminal probe.
The victim, who records show is between 12 and 16 years old, was granted an emergency restraining order this month barring Davis from contacting or coming near her. But Davis’ whereabouts were unknown at the time, so authorities could not immediately serve the order, records show.
That changed on Aug. 12, when police got a call about a possible residential burglary at the child’s home. Her mother told police Davis was wearing all black and trying to break in, records show.
Police later arrested Davis at Castlewood Park, where they found him carrying a backpack containing a black mask, black hat, crowbar, and other burglary tools, court records show.
Davis is also charged with two counts of lewd and lascivious molestation and is being held without bond Thursday at the Broward Main Jail.
