The Texarkana Texas Police Department have arrested Ricky Beckom, 40, and Greggory Beckom, 37, of Texarkana, Texas for Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Victim Under the Age of Fourteen. The crimes allegedly occurred while the brothers were living at their mother’s house and she was babysitting multiple children.
We recently arrested Ricky Beckom, 40, and Greggory Beckom, 37, for Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Victim Under the Age of Fourteen. The men are brothers and live in Texarkana, Texas. The crimes are alleged to have occurred between 2007 and 2011.
Officers were notified of the abuse after the now fourteen year old victim confided information about the sexual abuse to her mother. The victim said that when she was between the ages of four and eight years old, Ricky and Greggory Beckom individually forced her to perform sexual acts on numerous occasions. The assaults occurred at the Beckom home while the suspects’ mother babysat her. Both men were living with their mother at the time.
After conducting a criminal investigation, Detective Tabitha Smith arrested both men on November 15.
The investigation revealed that Beckom’s mother provided childcare to a number of children during this same general time frame. Unfortunately, there is reason to believe that some of those other children may have also been sexually abused by one or both of these men. If you think that your child may have been a victim of Ricky or Greggory Beckom, please call us at 903-798-3116.
Ricky and Greggory Beckom are still in custody at the Bi-State Jail. Bond for both men was set at $150,000.
