A 16-year-old was arrested Wednesday on two counts of criminal sexual conduct with a minor, Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Sgt. Robin McIntosh said.

Tyrus Antwan Perry allegedly had sex with two 12-year-old girls Tuesday night at a residence in Sandalwood apartments, McIntosh said. She said both encounters were consensual.

Perry is being charged as an adult as both girls were too young to legally give their consent. He was released on both charges of his own recognizance -- meaning he has promised to appear in court for all upcoming proceedings.
