Police: Kamiak student raped girls in abandoned parking lot

Four teens told Mukilteo police detectives they were assaulted last year near the high school.

MUKILTEO — A former Kamiak High School student is accused of raping at least four teenage girls last year while he was still enrolled on the Mukilteo campus, according to a police report.

The man, who is now 19 years old, was booked into the Snohomish County Jail on Thursday for investigation of five counts of felony rape, including one against a child. He was released the next day after posting bail.

The sexual assaults were reported to the Mukilteo Police Department last fall, when the girls informed the school resource officer. The incidents appeared to take place off campus and outside of school hours. The allegations are described in 15 pages of documents filed in Snohomish County Superior Court.

The man had taken 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. One was in middle school.

The first incident reportedly happened in March 2018. He drove a girl down to the beach in Mukilteo. They talked. She told police that he was “acting like her friend.”

That afternoon, he took her to the parking lot. It was still light out and it was raining. They smoked from a vape pen. He allegedly didn’t tell her until later that it was marijuana, not nicotine, inside. But they were having fun, she said.

Then he allegedly began sexually assaulting her. She told him to stop. He didn’t, saying “it was fine and it was fun,” according to court papers. It wasn’t fine, she reportedly told him.

He pushed her into the backseat and raped her, court papers say. She cussed at him and tried to push him off, but he was stronger, she told police.

In May 2018, the former student took a middle school girl to “the spot.” She said that earlier in the night she had done “Triple C’s,” a term for a brand of cough and cold medicine that people often abuse.

He got in the back seat with her, removed his clothes and raped her, according to court papers.

She said she couldn’t feel much of anything, and that the medicine made her feel like she was “out of her body,” police officers reported. She couldn’t speak properly and said she was too high to consent to sex, documents say.

He allegedly raped another girl at the same parking lot in June 2018. She had told him no several times, she reportedly said, but he ignored her. He also didn’t talk to her, and didn’t wear a condom, she reported. “She said she felt terrible and violated,” the police officer noted. “She said that he should not be able to walk around like nothing had happened.”

He only stopped when she got a phone call. The girl said it was her mother, saying it was past curfew. He drove her back home.

The former student allegedly sexually assaulted a fourth girl that spring in the woods behind the high school. He pushed her down and against a tree as he forced himself on her, the girl told police.
