A 20-year-old Central Washington University student has been arrested for the alleged sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl he met when she was attending a music camp where he was an instructor, Ellensburg police said Tuesday.
The suspect was arrested Monday in his hometown of Bothell, Wash., and was transported to Ellensburg. He was booked into the Kittitas County jail on two counts each of second-degree child rape, second-degree child molestation and communicating with a minor for immoral purposes, according to a news release from Ellensburg police Capt. Mike Coppin.
The victim was staying with her aunt in Ellensburg while attending the music camp, which was July 3-12 at Central, Coppin said. The alleged sexual abuse occurred last week, he said.
Ellensburg police are investigating whether there may be other victims. Anyone with concerns or information should contact the police department at 509-962-7280.
