SULTAN, Wash. – On Wednesday night, Sheriff’s Office east county deputies arrested a 45-year-old Sultan man for first-degree child molestation. Deputies responded to the 35000 block of Sultan Startup Road for a domestic disturbance. Upon arrival, deputies discovered the disturbance between an adult woman and the 45-year-old suspect occurred after the woman learned of a young child being sexually assaulted by the suspect.
Deputies spoke with all involved parties and determined there was probable cause to arrest the 45-year-old for child molestation in the first-degree. The suspect was arrested and booked into the Snohomish County Jail.
The suspect is a level one Registered Sex Offender in Snohomish County. The Sheriff’s Office Registered Sex Offender unit will be aggravating the offender’s risk classification to a level two. This classification may change again after the court process is complete.
The suspect had his initial court appearance today and is being held on $250,000 bail.
This remains an active investigation.
