Tony Grissom, 30, has been charged with first-degree rape after he allegedly raped a 14-year-old who had allegedly become intoxicated after being served alcohol, Franklin County Sheriff Shannon Oliver tells PEOPLE.

“I just can’t understand why a 30-year-old man has that kind of thought,” Oliver told AL.com. “It’s just senseless and awful.”

The two sisters were at their aunt’s trailer home on Wednesday in Russellville, Alabama. Their aunt, Melinda McNatt, 51, allegedly invited friends over to drink alcohol and take methamphetamine.
