A Scottsdale Hotel guest, who is a registered sex offender from Idaho, was allegedly caught assaulting pre-teen girls at a pool party.

Scottsdale Police report that on April 1 they were called to The Hospitality Suites near Scottsdale Road and McKellips Street for a disturbance. 

Police were told that a group of girls ages 6 to 10 years old, were attending a pool party. Also at the pool was another hotel guest, 43-year-old Brad Lee Wacaster.

Police say that when one of the parents of the girls was leaving the pool area, Wacaster allegedly slapped the woman on her butt. Another mother was told by her 6-year-old daughter that Wacaster pinched her in the elevator and followed her to her hotel room, where he scared the other girls by peeking his head into the room, saying, "he wanted to creep out her mommy."

Other children also reported to police that Wacaster touched them unwantedly, one saying Wacaster threw her into the pool.

Police say Wacaster admitted slapping the woman on the butt as if to say, “good game."

Wacaster is a registered sex offender from Idaho on probation for attempted rape and attempted strangulation.

He has now been charged with multiple counts of aggravated assault.
