On Tuesday, April 21, deputies from the Yucaipa Station responded to a call from the Riverside Police Department requesting assistance in locating a 14-year-old runaway juvenile. Investigation revealed the 14-year-old and a 17-year-old female ran away together. The 17-year-old later returned home. Investigation showed the 17-year-old engaged in sexual activities with Wyatt Mould, a 22 year old male from Yucaipa, and Riverside officers believed the 14 year old was still with him and possibly being sexually abused by Mould at a residence in Yucaipa.
Deputies contacted Mould and the 14-year-old as they arrived at a residence on Eighth Street, in Yucaipa. Investigation revealed Mould had sexual intercourse with both minors, oral copulation with the 14-year-old and was in possession of nude photographs of the 14-year-old he had previously requested via a social media application.
Mould was booked on multiple felony and misdemeanor sex crimes charges and is being held at Central Detention Center with bail set at $100,000.
Deputies believe there are other unidentified victims linked to Mould and are asking that anyone with information relating to this investigation to please contact the Yucaipa Station at 918-2305.
