Skagit County, WA – A 33-year old Skagit County man has been arrested for investigation of attempted rape of a child and multiple counts of communicating with a minor for immoral purposes.
According to court documents obtained by SkagitBreaking.com, a local teacher overheard an inappropriate comment made by a 12-year old student. The teacher reported the incident to the school counselor, who in turn made contact with the student and then contacted the Skagit County Sheriff’s Office.
The student told counselors that a 33-year old man known to her had forced her and another female minor to shower with him on several separate occasions when they were left alone with the man. The man attempted to get at least one of the young girls to perform sexual acts with him in exchange for not having to shower with him anymore. The girl admitted to Detectives that she continued to shower with the man instead of having to “do those things.”
Court documents show that Detectives interviewed the man on November 22nd, 2017. The man admitted to showering with the two young females to “conserve water.” He also admitted to telling one of the girls that “if she wanted to do anything sexual in nature, they could but he wouldn’t force her to do anything she didn’t want to do.”
Upon further questioning the man told Detectives that he does become sexually aroused when showering with the girls but he can think of a million other things that will arouse him because he is a very sexual person. He told Detectives he had never acted on his arousal with either girl and he denied having any sexual contact or sexual intercourse with either girl.
One of the girls refused to talk to Detectives about showering with the man or anything else that may have or may not have occurred with him. Both Children have been placed in child protective custody.
The man was booked into the Skagit County Community Justice Center on an INVESTIGATIVE HOLD for Communicating with a minor for immoral purposes and attempted Rape of a Child. He is currently being held in lieu of $75,000 bail.
