Brooksville man accused of having sex with teen boys

Man charged with having sex with teens

BROOKSVILLE — Police arrested a Brooksville man on five counts of sexual battery involving two teenage boys.

Guy Osman Gould, 65, of 7014 Daffodil Drive is accused of engaging in sexual activities with a 15-year-old boy and a 14-year-old boy, Brooksville police said. He remained in the county jail Wednesday in lieu of $40,000 bail.

The two boys were not identified in the report.

According to a police news release, the 15-year-old recently told his mother that he had sexual contact with Gould. The mother then went to the police, and an investigation began.

A search of Gould's house turned up evidence, police said, and Gould was arrested Monday. During an interview with police, Gould confessed to having sex with the 15-year-old and a 14-year-old boy, police said.

The 14-year-old later told police he had sexual contact with Gould on four occasions.

The five incidents took place from August through January, police said.

According to state records, Gould's only previous arrest came in Hernando County in 2008 on misdemeanor charges of driving under the influence and damaging property.

Teenager accused of pointing knife at dad

SPRING HILL — A 17-year-old is accused of pointing a knife at his father and threatening to kill him during an argument this week in their home.

The teen and his father were arguing Tuesday when the teen grabbed the knife, according to a Hernando County Sheriff's Office report. The father went into a bedroom, the report said, and the teen threw a ceramic cup at him, shattering it against a wall. The father then left the house.

The teen is not being identified because he is a juvenile.

The teen admitted to a deputy that he pointed the blade at his father, threatened to kill him and threw the cup, the report said.
