Press release from the SCSO below:
On September 10, 2020, the mother of a 13 year old victim came to the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office to report that her daughter had been sexually abused by the child’s biological father. During the investigation, it was discovered that the victim had learned in her health class at a Spartanburg County school that what was happening to her was wrong. She then took it upon herself to record the sexual abuse with an electronic device, knowing she would need evidence. The victim did disclose that this has been happening to her since she was in the second grade. The victim, suspect, and family did move to Spartanburg County in November, 2019. Based off the collected evidence, as well as a very credible disclosure from the victim, probable cause existed to present this case to a judge. On September 22, 2020, five warrants for Criminal Sexual Misconduct with a Minor - Second Degree were obtained. On September 23, 2020, search warrants were executed at the incident location located at Marconi Dr., Spartanburg. At that time, the suspect and father of the victim, Kong Yiayengva, was arrested and transported to the Sheriff’s Office where he confessed to having sexual intercourse multiple times with his juvenile daughter. He was then transported to the Spartanburg County Detention Facility without incident. A formal bond was held earlier today, where a magistrate deferred the setting of the suspect’s bond to a circuit court judge. The suspect’s booking photo and our incident report are attached above.
