ROY, Utah — An officer with the Roy City Police Department has been arrested on suspicion of child sex abuse. 

Ryan A. Estes was arrested last week for investigation on several counts of sexual abuse of a child, involving two minors. The city has subsequently placed him on administrative leave.

According to court documents, both of the victims were between the ages of 10 and 13 when the incidents occurred.

In a probable cause statement, the first victim said she was between the ages of 10 and 11 when the abuse started. 

In the same probable cause statement, the second victim stated she was 13 when she was abused.

In a text to KSL, Chief Matthew Gwynn, of the Roy City Police Department, acknowledged that Estes was an officer with the city.

“Yes [Ryan Estes] is an officer with us, he was placed on admin leave when we learned of this case. He will remain on leave until we have thoroughly evaluated the facts of this case and can make a determination as to his continued employment status,” the text read.

According to court documents, Estes is being held in the Davis County Jail without bail.
