The Maplewood School District sent a message to families about alleged communications between a suspect and students that resulted in charges.
Court records show Xang Vang, 37, has been charged with three
-1st degree criminal sexual conduct
-Soliciting a child to engage in sexual conduct
-Electronic comms with a minor to engage in sexual conduct
Charges say Vang contacted a 14-year-old through email and Snapchat to purchase sex, and that he also paid a 13-year-old for sex acts.
Law enforcement intervened and continued the electronic comms undercover.
Vang was arrested last week at a meet up spot near Wakefield Park in Maplewood.
A third victim, age 13, also came forward and said she performed sex acts with Vang in exchange for vape cartridges.
Charges indicate incidents may have stretched back to July 2022.
One victim described Vang as a “sugar daddy.”
