Sex assault suspect arrested
A 34-year-old Portland man was arrested early Wednesday morning for the sexual assault of his 82-year-old grandmother and his 49-year-old uncle.
The grandmother was treated at a local hospital for her injuries.
Willie Andre Johnson faces charges of first-degree attempted rape, first-degree unlawful sexual penetration, first-degree sex abuse, first-degree kidnapping and fourth-degree assault. Johnson, a registered sex offender, is being held in the Multnomah County Jail. He will be arraigned Monday, July 7, in circuit court.
Police were called at about 10:10 p.m. Tuesday, July 1, to the victims home in the Piedmont Neighborhood, where they were told about the assaults. Officers searched the area, but were unable to find Johnson.
Early Wednesday morning, a family member called 911 and said Johnson was at a fast-food restaurant on Northeast Grand Avenue at Weidler Street. Officers took Johnson into custody without incident.
