CAMDEN — Camden police arrested a 36-year old Camden man last week for sexual imposition and child endangering as part of an ongoing investigation.
On Tuesday, June 6, Michael Wayne Boggs, 36, of Rose Blvd., Camden, was arrested for sexual imposition and child endangering, according to Camden Police Chief Matt Spurlock.
“This was part of an ongoing investigation by the Camden Police Department led by Sgt. Brown,” Spurlock said.
Spurlock said his office received a referral from Preble County Children Services, stating Boggs had touched a 14-year old female inappropriately on multiple occasions.
Boggs, who was in control for the care of the child while her mother was in the hospital prior to her death, was accused of touching the child inappropriately in April of 2017, according to Spurlock.
Spurlock said the child came forward and advised Boggs made inappropriate comments and also touched her inappropriately on several occasions.
According to Spurlock, Sgt. Brown was able to speak to Boggs and he admitted to the child’s allegations. He also noted Boggs advised Sgt. Brown that he “needs help with his issues.”
“We as community leaders are sometimes the only voice of the children and we will take any allegations of sexual misconduct seriously.” Spurlock said. “The Camden Police Department will do everything in our power to protect our children in this community. We will not stand for any type of misconduct with a child and we will continue to protect those who are victims of crimes.”
