Haskell Rape Arrest

During the early morning hours of Saturday, May 16, 2015, Saline County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) deputies were dispatched to the Haskell Police Department for an alleged assault.  Upon arrival, deputies learned that the alleged assault took place at an address in the 500 block of Chandler Road.

When officers arrived at the Chandler Road address, they were met by Scott Alan Westbrook, white/male, 45 years of age.  Westbrook was arrested at the scene and charged with Rape of a Minor and First Degree Sex Offense of a Minor. 

Westbrook is a Level 2 registered sex offender who resides in the 500 block of Chandler Road.  Westbrook was convicted of Sexual Assault-Second Degree and Burglary on March 22, 2004.  That offense involved forced sexual contact with a 17 year old female.

Sheriff Rodney Wright stated that any type of sexual assault investigation will receive specific attention, especially offenses which involve minors.  Sheriff Wright complimented the deputies and detectives for resolving this case quickly and successfully.

Westbrook is currently incarcerated at the Saline County Jail.  His bond has been set at $50,000.

This investigation is still being conducted and no further details can be released at this time.
