Former Kamiak student accused of sexually assaulting four girls

 

A former Kamiak High School student was arrested last week after being accused of raping at least four girls in 2018 while enrolled at the school, according to Snohomish County court records.

The incidents occurred between April and June of 2018. The victims’ ages ranged from 14 to 15 years old at the time, and they were all acquaintances of the suspect, who was 18 at the time of the incidents, the Mukilteo Police Department said.

The victims were interviewed last year and this March, according to the documents, and all incidents were reported to the school resource officer stationed at Kamiak.

“The Mukilteo Police Department’s school resource officer was contacted by a Kamiak School official who disclosed that a student reported that she had been sexually assaulted,” a Mukilteo Police Department news release said. “The school resource officer, in conjunction with Mukilteo detectives, began an investigation. During the course of the investigation, three additional victims and a suspect were identified.”

Police arrested the suspect, Cameron Stone, now 19, for multiple counts of rape. He was booked in Snohomish County Jail last Thursday, and was released the next day after posting bail.

According to the news release, the investigation took more than seven months.

The first incident occurred in March 2018, according to court documents. The victim was reportedly friendly with Stone, and told police they were having fun driving around town in the suspect’s car.

The duo ended up at a parking lot on 47th Avenue West near Electroimpact and behind the Kamiak sports fields.

According to documents, the two were vaping what the victim believed was nicotine, but was actually marijuana. Soon after, Stone “leaned over and unzipped her pants” and physically penetrated her, the victim told police.

She said she told Stone to stop, but he “said it was fine and it was fun.”

Stone then allegedly pushed the victim to the back of the car where he raped her, despite her telling him no, cussing at him, and attempting to push him off.

In another incident that occurred last May, a middle school girl told officers she had done “triple Cs,” or cough/cold medicine, prior to meeting with Stone.

The two were in his car, and the girl said he advanced on her and allegedly raped her in his back seat, and that she never gave consent.

She told police she was “too high” to fully consent, and in the days following the incident, felt uncomfortable that it happened. She told police Stone should be prosecuted for what he did because she was incapable of giving consent.

The incident occurred in the same parking lot on 47th Avenue West.

Another incident occurred in June of last year, when Stone drove a different girl to that same parking lot, which he referred to as “the spot.”

Stone reportedly started kissing her, despite the victim’s resistance, she told police. She said she eventually “gave in” and, soon after, he allegedly was trying to take her pants off despite her telling him “no” multiple times.

The victim told police Stone raped her for roughly five minutes before the girl’s mother called because it was after curfew. She said he then drove her home, and didn’t talk to her about what had occurred.

A fourth incident reportedly occurred last April or May in a wooded area near Kamiak, when Stone allegedly forced himself on a girl against a tree. She told police Stone got a call from his mother, and that’s when he stopped.

While he was on the phone, she left the area to look for a friend, she told officers.

In the news release, Mukilteo Police Chief Cheol Kang said he admired the victims for telling their stories to the police.

“I’m proud of the courage these young victims displayed to come forward and report this incident to school officials and ultimately to the police,” he said. “The school resource officer and detectives worked diligently while investigating this case.”

During their interviews with police, the victims were asked what they felt should happen to Stone.

One of the girls told officers he should “be put away for a long time” and that “she doesn’t think he should be around middle school or high school girls.”

Another girl said he should “be put in jail because she knows he had done this to other girls, too.”

Last Thursday, Stone was booked into Snohomish County Jail for investigation of five counts of felony rape, including one against a child.
