20-YEAR-OLD MARINE CAUGHT IN THE ACT WITH 14-YEAR-OLD RUNAWAY

A 20-year-old Marine Corps PFC was arrested Tuesday after deputies caught him having sexual intercourse with a 14-year-old runaway girl. According to a Sheriff’s report, Donovan Bowin, a private first class with 2nd Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment on the base, had contacted the girl through social media. He paid for a rideshare service to transport the girl from Fontana where she lived to the Marine Base in Twentynine Palms, and helped her gain access to the base. Detectives were called to the base to locate the girl; they had a search warrant, and when they entered Bowin’s barracks room, they found the two in flagrante delicto. Donovan Bowin was arrested on suspicion of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor more than three years younger than him and was booked into the Morongo Basin Jail with his bail set at $25,000.
