Police Officer arrested for child rape
Police officer arrested and jailed on child rape charges
A former Colville Police Officer has been arrested in Chelan County and charged with Rape of a Child in the First Degree. Scott L. Arms was booked into the Chelan County jail, his bail set at $25,000. As of Wednesday morning, he had been released.
According to court documents, the alleged victim told her middle school counselor about the incident she says took place at a Wenatchee home in January. The alleged victim then relayed the same story to investigators with the Chelan County Sheriff’s Office. She says she was watching a Seahawks game with Arms when he sexually assaulted her.
According to court documents, the young woman told investigators that she didn’t come forward because she was “very fearful and did not know what to do, especially since Arms was a police officer.” At the time of the alleged incident, Arms was a Colville Police Officer. Court records show the girl told police she came forward in April because she found out Arms was quitting his job in Colville and was going to be in Wenatchee more often.
