DAVIS COUNTY, Utah — The Davis County Sheriff’s Office arrested a convicted felon earlier this week on allegations of aggravated kidnapping, forcible sexual assault of a minor, and sexual exploitation of a minor, and other charges.

According to police, the suspect, who has been identified as Samuel Cryder, 18, was booked into the Davis County Jail without incident on Thursday.

Convicted felon reached out to victim

On Tuesday, the Davis County Sheriff’s Office was notified that Cryder had used text messages and social media to convince a minor female to meet him. Police say Cryder coerced the minor despite knowing she was under the age of 15. 

Police say that Cryder reportedly traveled to the girl’s school in Davis County. Additionally, police say that Cryder reportedly held the girl against her will, and sexually assaulted her. 

According to police, Cryder allegedly coerced the girl to meet up again the next day at the school. Again, Cryder allegedly assaulted the victim.

Police say Cryder tried to arrange a third meeting. However, that meeting did not happen, and authorities were notified. 

Interviewed by police

When questioned by police, Cryder reportedly admitted to knowing the victim was under the age of 15. Police also say he acknowledged he used force in sexually abusing the victim. According to police, Cryder allegedly admitted to assaulting a second minor. However, authorities are still trying to identify that victim. 

According to the probable cause statement, Cryder faces eight counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, a second-degree felony. He is also facing two counts of forcible sexual abuse, a second-degree felony. Additionally, Cryder is facing three counts of enticing of a minor by text or internet. He is also facing single counts of aggravated kidnapping and dealing in materials harmful to a minor.
