DALLAS -- Laquantis Davis was a stand out on the football field at Lake Highlands High School. The star safety had his sights set on one day playing college ball.
Last week, however, Dallas police arrested the 18-year-old for sexual assault of a child for an alleged rape involving a 15-year-old girl who also attended Lake Highlands High on the school's athletic fields.
In court documents obtained by News 8, Davis, a senior, told police he and the victim skipped class and headed out to baseball fields. He reportedly told police he asked the victim to have sex, but she resisted.
"The suspect admitted the complainant told him 'No, it wasn't a good idea,'" the documents say.
He told police he and the girl were sitting on a watercooler, and she jumped off his lap and ran.
"The suspect admitted to chasing the complainant, grabbing her and pushing her to the ground," the documents say.
Police say Davis then forced her to have sex.
"The suspect admitted he believes he forced her because she told him no," police documents say.
The two reportedly kept talking after the incident and texting.
Police say Davis texted the victim saying, "It's my fault. I forced you the first time."
Those who know the football player say he was being mentored by a group that helps fatherless children. They are surprised by the allegations and said it's uncharacteristic of him.
Davis is charged with sexual assault of a child and remains jailed on $100,000 bond.
