From ABC4 on 2018-04-20:

“BLUFFDALE, Utah (News4Utah) – Police arrested a man in Bluffdale on charges of rape.

Craig David Whiting is accused of raping and molesting two young girls over the course of three years.

According to the probable cause statement, Bluffdale police detectives were notified by Division of Child and Family Services that a 13-year-old girl disclosed that she had been raped and molested several times by Whiting between June 2014 and June 2017.

This victim also told authorities she saw Whiting touch her 10-year-old sister.

Officers went to Whiting’s home on April 10. Charging documents state Whiting would not comply with officers when they told him he was under arrest and he had to be physically pulled from the house.

During an interview, police said Whiting confirmed that he knew both girls and described himself as “surrogate father.”

Whiting faces charges of rape of a child, sexual abuse of a child and interference with arresting officer.””
