A North Ogden sex offender is accused of kidnapping a 14-year-old boy at knife-point from an Ogden train station and forcing him to perform sex acts.
The boy was exiting a FrontRunner train on July 3 when Ryan Schaffer, 33, approached the teen and threatened him with a knife, police wrote in court documents filed Wednesday. Schaffer then took the boy "all over the city of Ogden" over the next three days, police wrote.
At one home, near 600 32nd Street, Schaffer allegedly introduced the residents to the boy as his cousin. A resident at the home confirmed the victim's account and said she took pictures of Schaffer and the victim "together at the playground playing," police wrote.
