Former foster dad arrested for lewdness, assault against child

LAS VEGAS - A former foster care dad was arrested on four counts of Lewdness with a Child under 14 and one count of Sexual Assault with a Child under 14.

Metro's Sex Crimes Bureau arrested 51-year-old Grant Claycomb Thursday.  The charges stemmed from allegations which were made by a female foster child that resided in his home in 2015.

According to Clark County, Claycomb hasn't had a foster care license since November 2015, but before his license was expired, he is said to have cared for numerous foster children while he was licensed in the state.

Detectives have also learned that Claycomb has been an active youth leader for his church for many years.

As part of the ongoing investigation, detectives are seeking the public’s help to find additional victims. Any parents whose children may have had past contact with Claycomb are asked to come forward so that police can determine if their child has been victimized.

Anyone with any information about this case or additional incidents involving the suspect is urged to contact the LVMPD Sex Crimes Bureau at 702-828-3421. To remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 702-385-5555, on the internet at www.crimestoppersofnv.com, or text CRIMENV plus tip information to 274637 (CRIMES). Message and data rates may apply.
