MUKILTEO — A former Kamiak High School student has been charged in Snohomish County Superior Court in the sexual assault of a teenage girl.
Mukilteo police were initially investigating Cameron Reed Stone, 20, for five counts of felony rape, including one against a child. As of June 22, he has been charged with one count of second-degree rape.
The alleged sexual assaults were reported to the Mukilteo Police Department in the fall of 2018, after at least four girls told a Kamiak High counselor and a school resource officer what had happened to them. Stone was a Kamiak student at the time of the alleged rapes, which appeared to take place off campus and outside school hours.
Stone allegedly took three of the girls to what he called “the spot” — an abandoned parking lot near the Kamiak football field off of 47th Avenue West. Two of the girls had consumed drugs, affecting their ability to consent. One was in middle school, while Stone was 18.
In the March 2018 sexual assault that Stone was charged for, the girl had told him to stop. He claimed it was fine and that it was fun, according to prosecutors. She told him it was not fine.
He allegedly then pushed her into the back seat, forced off her pants and underwear, and raped her, despite further pleas for him to stop. She tried to push him off, she reported, but he was stronger.
The girl later told a detective she didn’t immediately report the rape because she worried what others would think of her.
Another girl reported a similar story. She reportedly also was taken to “the spot,” and she also attempted to reject Stone’s advances, but he allegedly forced himself on her anyway. She said she held off on telling anyone, because she was scared and worried people would think she was lying, according to charging papers. Stone is scheduled for arraignment at the end of July.
