Meet 24-year-old Patrick Francois Georges. Georges posed for the mugshot above after being arrested in Jacksonville, NC.
The crimes for which he’s accused of may be kinda sketchy but allegedly Georges had an online scam going where ‘straight’ men were lured to a home thinking they were meeting a hot broad for sex.
At least 2 young Camp Lejeune Marines have come forward claiming they were hoodwinked, tricked, and bamboozled after being led to the home and coerced into performing a sex with Georges after he threatened them with extortion!
A young male Camp Lejeune Marine, whose identity will not be released due to the nature of the alleged crime, says he’s the victim of an online dating scam.
According to warrants from the Jacksonville Police Department, the Marine told officers he had met a person he thought was a female on a social networking site, but what was supposed to be a casual sex encounter with a female, turned into a forced homosexual encounter!
How does something like this happen, you ask? Well… keep reading!
The Marine said he agreed to meet a lady at a home in Jacksonville and once he arrived, he got a text message telling him to go inside.
“She texted me. She was like, ‘Oh, wait on the porch for a second while I put my daughter to bed.’ So I was like, ‘Alright.’
I texted her back. I was like, ‘Can I come in yet? It’s freezing.’ Because it was really cold at the time.’ Then, she was like, ‘Just come in, sit on the couch,'” the Marine told NewsChannel 12.
According to court documents, the Marine entered the home, but there was no woman inside. Instead, he came face to face with Georges (the man in the mugshot above), who approached him and accused him of breaking into the residence.
Georges claimed the Marine broke into the home because the front door was locked, and a back-and-forth argument between him and the Marine lasted for about an hour, the warrants stated.
The Marine told Georges he did did not break in, and even showed Georges the messages that he exchanged with the supposed female he met online, the warrants continued.
“I was like, ‘Look, it’s a whole big misunderstanding. Can I go? You don’t have to call the cops or anything. I didn’t come over meaning any harm. So just kind of let me go, you know?’ And he was like, ‘No, you just broke into my house.'”
The Marine said Georges then threatened to call police if the Marine didn’t agree to perform a sex act, the warrants stated.
The Marine told investigators he eventually complied in fear that Georges would call authorities to report the supposed break-in.
If you, like me, are asking ‘Why didn’t he just leave?’… well the Marine explains:
“Especially if I did flee the scene, [the police would believe Georges]. It’s like, only a criminal would flee the scene.”
The Marine said he left the home AFTER performing the sex act and took a cab back to the barracks. It was then that he found out he wasn’t the first man who had been duped!
“My cab driver told me that he had seen multiple Marines come into contact with this guy and have the same situation,” the Marine said.
The Marine explained that was what made him decide to go to police, to prevent another person from becoming a victim.
Investigators executed a search warrant at George’s home and found enough evidence to arrest him. He was charged with extortion and crime against nature.
