SOUTH SALT LAKE, Utah – A woman was arrested Tuesday and booked into jail after she was accused of raping two teen boys.

According to a press release from the South Salt Lake Police Department, 33-year-old Lisa Brea Griffiths allegedly befriended two boys, invited them to her apartment, gave them alcohol and had sexual contact with them.

The alleged victims are ages 13 and 14, and, according to the press release, the suspect allegedly had sexual contact with the boys on two separate occasions. One incident occurred in September, and the other occurred three months before then.

Griffiths was an acquaintance of the 13-year-old boy’s parents, who lived nearby. According to the release, the suspect knew both victims were minors. The boys are friends and not related to the suspect. Police were notified of the alleged offenses after one of the boys told his parents about the sexual contact.

Formal charges have yet to be filed, but Griffiths was booked into jail on two counts of rape of a child, a first-degree felony, and one count of unlawful sexual activity with a minor, which is a third-degree felony.

The case is being screened by the Salt Lake County District Attorney’s Office.
