A complaint was filed by a father in 1986 stating his son and other victims suffered sexual abuse at the hands of a Boy Scout volunteer at this house in Phoenix.

It took nearly three decades for an ex-Boy Scouts volunteer in Arizona to face criminal charges after a confidential complaint to the Boy Scouts of America peeled away at a sex house of horrors.

Maricopa County Police arrested William Challberg, 66, on Thursday on suspicion of sex crimes against several victims including a teenager he met in a Phoenix troop and groomed for sexual relations over several months, according to a complaint filed by the victim’s father in 1986.

Charging documents identify at least five victims of sexual abuse in a case against Challberg and his longtime roommate, Julian Mendoza 51, who police arrested as well for alleged sex crimes.

The unnamed victim described in the 1986 Boy Scouts of America complaint is now 45-years-old.
