PHOENIX (KSAZ) - Two men are in police custody after an investigation into sexual abuse that was reported by the Boy Scouts of America.

Police say there were five victims between 9 to 16 years-old when the attacks happened. The attacks allegedly happened between 1983 to 2003.

Phoenix Police arrested 65-year-old William "Bill" Challberg and the man he lived with, 51-year-old Julian Mendoza.

Investigators say that both men took photographs and videos of the victims. "There are indications from some of the victims that there were orgy style parties that were going on and they were encouraged to bring other young men to the house, they were being provided alcohol and drugs," said Sgt. Trent Crump.

In October of 2013 during a review of files the BSA officials discovered a written complaint from a father that had specific details of the attacks. The information was turned over to Phoenix Police, who conducted an investigation that led to the arrests.

Challberg was forced to resign from the Boy Scouts in 1986.

In total, 26 charges have been requested against Challberg, including molestation of a child, indecent exposure, furnishing obscene material to minors, sexual conduct with a minor and sexual assault.

In total, 16 charges have been requested against Mendoza, including luring a minor for sex exploitation, furnishing obscene material to minors and public sexual indecency.

Anyone with information on the attacks or if you think you are a victim call the Phoenix Police child crimes hotline at 602-262-4543.
