Accused Great Wolf Lodge rapist awaiting trial

The (Centralia) Chronicle

The 19-year-old former Great Wolf Lodge lifeguard who was accused of raping a 14-year-old girl last May is still awaiting trial for third-degree child rape.

Alex E. Salazar’s trial is currently set for March 12. He is out of custody on bail. His trial has been delayed three times.

The 14-year-old girl was staying at the hotel with her family and told police she had befriended the lifeguard at the pool and voluntarily met with him once his shift was complete on May 14, according to the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office. After his shift, which ended around midnight, she got into his car and they left the property.

Inside the car, he allegedly raped the girl, according to the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office. Afterward, he dropped the girl back off at the hotel and she told her family what happened. The teen told police she did not consent to the sex.
