Sexual assault at Cougar Village sees the arrest of teenager

A student reported that she was sexually assaulted in her Cougar Village room by Keon Mark Whitehead, 19, while she was drunk April 13.

According to the criminal complaint filed against Whitehead, the student said she could only vaguely remember what happened, but she recalled Whitehead, an acquaintance of her roommate and her, standing beside her bed after she had been drinking for several hours.

She then said her legs had fallen off of the bed, and she remembered Whitehead picking them up, and according to the complaint, Whitehead confirmed — via telephone the next day — that the two of them had sexual intercourse and that he did not use a condom.

According to the complaint, Whitehead had videotaped the student sleeping until her roommate told him to stop. He also admitted to the UH Department of Public Safety that he knew she had been drinking, and that he engaged in sexual contact.

According the UHDPS’ daily crime bulletin, she reported the assault shortly after midnight April 15.

Whitehead was taken to Harris County Jail with a bail set at $30,000, and his next court date is May 16.
