Portland police arrest man on sex abuse charges

Portland police have arrested Hassaan Themba, 44, on charges of Sex Abuse I after he reportedly grabbed a juvenile woman Sunday evening.

On Jan. 5, shortly after 10 p.m., Central Precinct officers were dispatched to the Baskin Robbins located at 6371 SW Capitol Highway. Upon arrival, officers contacted the victim, a juvenile woman, who related that the suspect had entered the store and grabbed her in a sexual manner while behaving lewdly.

Officers began a search of the area and were able to apprehend a suspect. The Portland Police Bureau believes that all the suspects in this case have been identified and this case is not believed to be related to the recent string of "flashing" incidents in the S.W. metro area.

Themba was arrested on charges of Sex Abuse I and other related offenses.
