A 21-year-old Scottsbluff man is facing felony charges after investigation of a sexual assault case involving a 13-year-old victim and creation of a sex tape video .

Marcel Salinas was scheduled for an initial appearance Monday afternoon on charges of first degree sexual assault of a minor and possession of child pornography by an adult.

In court documents, authorities say the case came to light in August 2019 after a foster parent confiscated the victim’s phone after she had returned from running away, and found sexually explicit pictures and videos of the victim.

Investigators say in February 2020, one of the victim’s family members identified Salinas as the man in one of the videos, which was taken in the summer of 2019.

They say during interviews in September and October of this year, the victim recounted the making of the video at home of the suspect’s father, and identified Salinas in a photo lineup.

During an interview conducted by Ohio authorities, Salinas said he recalled seeing the victim around, but denied ever hanging out with the teen.

Initial bond for Salinas was set at $500,000 with a ten percent provision.
