They met on Xbox, but what happened next was no game.
Police say a 14-year-old boy from Oklahoma was kidnapped by two New Mexico women after he met one of them on Xbox Live and things got sexual.
It all began when the victim met Kristen Aragon, 35, in an Xbox Live party. According to an affidavit, she asked for his number and they began texting each other.
The boy told police that Aragon told him she “wanted to have sex with him,” KRQE in New Mexico reported. She allegedly asked him to send her a picture of his penis, which he told police he did, twice. She also allegedly sent him sexually explicit texts.
The boy told police he originally told Aragon he was 17. He later revealed he was only 14. According to the affidavit, Aragon told him “she already knew how old he was and that she knew his address before he told her.”
Aragon allegedly lied about where she lived, telling the teen she lived just 30 minutes away from him. He said Aragon only revealed that she lived in Farmington, New Mexico after she drove 13 hours with her friend Melissa Goelz, 29 (pictured below), on April 16 to the victim's home in Pittsburg County, Oklahoma. When Aragon and Goelz arrived at the teen’s home, Aragon told him “he would never be back,” the affidavit states.
The victim’s dad reported him missing April 16. Police were able to track him to Aragon using a ping on the victim’s phone and through messages on his Xbox.
Officers were waiting in Aragon’s driveway for her and Goelz when she arrived home a day after the boy’s kidnapping. Police said during the drive that Aragon sexually assaulted the teen multiple times. The boy is now back home in Oklahoma.
Aragon was charged May 4 with felony kidnapping of a child and felony lewd or indecent proposal to a minor. Goelz, 29, was charged with felony kidnapping of a child.
The FBI is reviewing the case for possible federal charges against Aragon and Goelz, according to The Claremore Daily Progress in Claremore, Oklahoma.
If convicted, both could be jailed for up to 10 years for the alleged kidnapping. Aragon also faces up to 20 years in jail for the alleged lewd or indecent proposal to a minor.
