The girls and their families were guests at the hotel. The girl told their parents what happened. The parents called police and wished to press charges. 

    "These young girls did the right thing," said Det. Angie Munson of the Boise Police Special Victims Unit. "They recognized the potential stranger danger and told their parents right away. The parents called police right away and officers were able to find the suspect still in the area."

    "These girls also stayed together while they were at the pool and were watching out for each other. There's support in numbers. This arrest is thanks to these girls being alert to their safety, the safety of their friends and thinking quickly."
