Bowie County grand jury indicts Texarkana man for alleged sexual assault of 5-year-old boy


A Bowie County grand jury indicted a Texarkana man Thursday for the alleged sexual assault of a 5-year-old boy earlier this year.

Qwansie “Quincy” Randolph Stewart, 23, was allegedly babysitting the boy June 20 while his father ran an errand, according to a probable cause affidavit. The boy allegedly made an outcry about the abuse to his father the following day.

The boy allegedly told a forensic interviewer at the Children’s Advocacy Center in Texarkana that he and Stewart were in his living room playing video games when Stewart assaulted him.

“(The alleged victim) advised that he told Quincy to stop because it felt bad,” the affidavit states. “He said that Quincy told him not to tell anyone but he told anyway. He advised that he told his dad what happened.”

Stewart was indicted for aggravated sexual assault of a child. If found guilty, Stewart faces five to 99 years or life in prison. The case has been assigned to 5th District Judge Bill Miller. Jail records show Stewart is currently being held in Bowie County custody.
