CENTRAL ISLIP -

Officials say a 19-year-old accused of raping two teenagers faced a judge Monday.

Suffolk prosecutors say 19-year-old Jesse Myers gave both a written and oral confession to police, admitting to raping a 14-year-old girl and a 15-year-old girl last week.

Myers was arrested Sunday morning in North Babylon.

According to detectives, Myers had sex with the 14-year-old last Thursday at a trailer parked outside of his home on Parkdale Drive and then again with a 15-year-old on Saturday inside his home.

Officials say the girls met Myers through mutual acquaintances.

A friend of Myers says she does not believe the allegations of rape.

Myers was charged with rape in the second and third degrees and was held on $35,000 bail for each charge.

He is due back in court on March 11.
