A 19 year-old pedophile keen to look ‘cool and awesome’ in front of children raped an 11 year-old girl and molested three others, police say.

Damian Devore allegedly picked the 11 year-old Snapchat contact up from her grandparents house in Wichita Falls, Texas, in October 2019, then drove her to some bushes and attacked her. He appeared in court earlier this week after unsuccessfully applying to have his $150,000 bond lowered.

The 11 year-old is said to have told Devore that she was too young, only for him to begin assaulting her. Devore is said to have continued to do so even after the child told him she was in pain, and asked him to stop. After the attack, Devore allegedly returned the victim to her grandparents’ house, before driving off again.

The suspected pedophile is said to have struck again the following month after grooming another underage girl on Snapchat, according to police. He asked to come over to a house where that girl and two friends were staying, it is claimed. Once there, Devore is said to have plied the children with alcohol.

During a subsequent police interview he said he did so to try and look ‘cool and awesome’ in front of the children. Once there, Devore is accused of plying the youngsters with alcohol, and coaxed them into performing sex acts. One of the girls said she blacked out after being given the booze.

After the alleged attack, several parents showed up and began beating Devore.

Devore was charged last July, and has been held in prison since. He faces spending the rest of his life in jail if convicted, KJTL reported.
