Two Arrested For Sexual Assault


Details about a weekend sexual assault incident remain sketchy.

The case began with the report of a runaway juvenile female Friday. The girl and two other juvenile females were found at a local motel Saturday. Two of them alleged that they had been sexually assaulted.

Two males, a 20-year-old Payson man, and a 16-year-old, also of Payson, were arrested Sunday.

The 20-year-old has been charged with providing marijuana to minors, Sgt. Tom Tieman said. The juvenile male was arrested for sexual misconduct with a minor under the age of 15, according to the weekly news release from the Payson Police Department.

A third man, an 18-year-old resident of Payson, was arrested late Thursday, May 16 and charged with sexual conduct with a minor.

The police had been looking for him since Sunday.

The PPD is still investigating the incident, Tieman said.
