Man arrested in Forest Grove

Members of a Washington County Sheriff’s Office team came to Forest Grove June 27 and arrested a 22-year-old Beaverton man on felony charges of second degree rape of a child and second degree child molestation.

Members of the county Criminal Apprehension Team came to Miguel Montes-Ramirez’s workplace and led him away in handcuffs.

Law enforcement officials allege that Montes-Ramirez had sexual intercourse with a young girl from September 2010 to June 2011.

The alleged crimes took place in the state of Washington, according to WCSO spokesman Sgt. Bob Ray. Montes-Ramirez is being held at Washington County Jail until he can be transferred to Clark County. No bail has been set.

Ray said Montes-Ramirez is also on an “ICE hold,” the term used for people detained by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.
