Calif. sex offender arrested for sex assault near Sandy
A registered sex offender in California since 2002 was arrested in Pomona, Calif., after allegedly sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl in an unincorporated part of Clackamas County near Sandy, the Sheriff's Office said.
KOIN 6 News is reporting that John David Bowe, 48, was indicted Wednesday by a grand jury on 12 charges: one count of first-degree rape, seven counts of first-degree sodomy, two counts of first-degree sexual abuse and two counts of second-degree sodomy.
Bowe was arrested in Pomona and is in San Bernadino County Jail. He's awaiting extradition to Oregon.
Deputies said they learned, through an investigation, that Bowe "is known to have frequented locations where children congregate," and that they believe he's had contact with multiple families and minors.
Clackamas County Sheriff's Office detectives are asking anyone who may have had contact with Bowe while children were present to get in touch with investigators.
