Deputies: Fort Mill mom held man at gunpoint after he had sex with her teen daughter

FORT MILL, SC (WBTV) -

A Fort Mill mom wants to send a message to parents after she caught her 15-year-old daughter having sex with a man who she met on a popular social media site.

The man claimed to be a teenager.

The mother held him at gunpoint until Sheriff's Deputies arrived.

To protect the identity of the daughter, the mother's name won't be mentioned in this article.

The Fort Mill mother describes the emotional and terrifying moments after she saw a strange man in her home early Sunday morning.

"If he tried to escape, I would have shot him," she said.

Around 3:30 Sunday morning, she noticed an unfamiliar car in her driveway off of Munn Road.

She says she sent her oldest daughter to check the home and when she did, she found Addison Pittman in one of her bathrooms.

The mother quickly grabbed a BB gun.

"I had it (the gun) held just like this. I had it point towards his chest and I held him," she said.

She held up Pittman until Sheriff Deputies arrived.

At first, the mother thought Pittman was a burglar until her 15-year-old daughter revealed she invited the man over to have sex after.

The daughter met Pittman on the popular social media website Kik.

According to Deputies' reports, Pittman and the daughter had been in contact for 5 months and she knew he was 23.

Pittman told the mother he was 17 and she didn't find out his actual age until deputies showed up.

"If I knew he was 23 at the time, I probably would have pulled this BB gun and shot him," said the mother.

What scares this Fort Mill mother even more is the thought of what could have happened.

"What's to say he wouldn't have choked her or had a weapon on him, killed her and I would have found her dead," she said.

The mother now has this message for parents.

"Talk to your kids often even though they tell you that they deserve their privacy, and they do, but to an extent."

Pittman was charged with 3rd degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.

He was released on $15,000 bond.

The mom says the daughter didn't get off lightly. She took away her cell phone, internet privileges and she's grounded.

The mother and is urging anyone else who had contact with Pittman, call the York County Sheriff's office.
