On Thursday, April 22nd, at 7:35am, Kingman Police arrested Marc Bryan Cariaga Mayubay, 20 of Delano, CA, on felony charges of Sexual Abuse and Sexual Conduct with a Minor. Officers responded to a report of suspicious activity in the 800blk of N. 1st St. A witness reported seeing two teenagers inside an SUV parked along the road involved in sexual activity. Officers arrived and determined that Mayubay was involved in sexual activity with a 16-year-old Kingman area girl.
It was also determined that the victim and Mayubay had connected sometime during the previous weeks by using an app called ‘Monkey’. Mayubay is alleged to have driven to Kingman that morning, picked up the victim at her bus stop and parked near her school. Mayubay provided the victim with a new cell phone and a sizeable amount of cash. Mayubay, who admitted involvement in the offense, was arrested and booked into the Mohave County Adult Detention Facility. The victim, who was not injured, was released to her parents.
Warning to parents
Parents need to know that the Monkey app randomly connects teens with other Snapchat users for a 10-second video chat. They can add more time or add the person on Snapchat to continue the connection. The app allows users ages 13 and older, but there is no verification of age. As always, parents are encouraged to monitor their children’s phone and computer activity. Please report any suspected criminal activity.
