Arlayne Curiel Arrested for Sexual Abuse
An Albany woman called police on Saturday to report that she was being harassed by neighbors. By Tuesday her tale had unraveled, according to police reports, and 24-year-old Arlayne Curiel was in jail.
A police investigation alleges that the harassment started when neighbors discovered she had spent early Saturday morning having sexual contact with a 13-year-old boy. According to police, Curiel reportedly met a 13-year-old boy while walking in downtown Albany Friday night. At about 1 a.m. on Saturday the 13-year-old boy reportedly went to Curiel's home.
Police said Curiel then gave the 13 year old alcohol before entering an unoccupied home next door with him at 2335 S.E. Salem Ave., where they had sexual contact.
On Tuesday, Albany police detectives arrested her on multiple charges. She was lodged in the Linn County Jail on the following charges:
• Sex Abuse in the First Degree (2 counts)
• Sodomy in the Second Degree (3 counts of hand- or mouth-to-genital contact)
• Rape in the Second Degree
• Burglary in the First Degree
• Furnishing Alcohol to a Minor
One person who said they knew Curiel said she may be developmentally disabled and did not know what she was doing was wrong.
The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with any information regarding Arlayne Curiel or this investigation is asked to call the Albany Police Department Detective Section at (541) 917-7686.
