MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) -

UPDATE 5/23/2019: 44-year-old Phennix Givens is charged with 2 counts of especially aggravated kidnapping, aggravated rape, aggravated assault and arson.

According to a police affidavit, a 17-year-old boy and 15-year-old girl were walking in the area of Frayser Blvd and North Watkins on Tuesday around 10 p.m. when Givens approached them asking if they wanted to make some money. The teens agreed, but, once they arrived at a house in the 3300 block of Riney, Givens pulled out a knife.

Once inside, Givens made both of them take off their clothes. He then forced the girl to the floor sexually assaulting her. He forced the boy to the attic after stabbing him in the leg with the knife. He forced the girl into his bed, then he fell asleep. Once Givens was asleep, the girl went and helped the boy down from the attic, they escaped the house and was able to flag down a Shelby County School security officer.

When Memphis police officers arrived to the house, Givens answered the door with a knife. He eventually put he knife down, went back inside and set fire to the house.

Givens was arrested when he tried climbing out of a bathroom window.
