Former Cedar Glen Boy Scout Camp Counselor Arrested for Sexual Assault

CEDAR GLEN, Calif. ( A 23-year-old former Cedar Glen boy scout camp counselor was arrested for sexual assault of a 16-year-old male, authorities said.

In October of 2015, the victim and his parents reported to the Twin Peaks Sheriff’s Station that Sean Lee, an adult male, sexually assaulted the victim. The case was immediately transferred to the Specialized Investigations Division – Crimes Against Children Detail (CACD).

Detectives determined Sean Lee worked as a camp counselor at a Boy Scout Camp in Cedar Glen, in San Bernardino County, during the summer months of 2015.

The victim attended the same camp during June of 2015 when he was allegedly assaulted by Lee at the camp.

Detectives conducted a lengthy investigation and numerous interviews of persons who attended or worked at the camp during that time frame. Following that investigation, an arrest warrant for Sean Lee was obtained on December 30th, 2016, for the charges of PC 288a(b)(1), oral copulation of a minor, and PC 286(f), sodomy of an unconscious victim.

Lee surrendered to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Chino Hills Station on January 1, 2017, and was subsequently booked at the West Valley Detention Center.

Lee’s bail was set for $100,000. At approximately 9:08 p.m., Lee was released from WVDC after posting bail.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department is releasing Lee’s booking photograph in the event other camp staff or attendees witnessed Lee engaged in unlawful behavior.

Anyone with additional information is urged to contact Det. MJ Higgins or Sergeant Dana Foster, with Crimes Against Children Detail at (909) 387-3615.
