Salem man arrested in Beaverton for sex with minors
Beaverton Police have arrested a Salem resident who worked for the Salem-Keizer Education Foundation, on charges revolving around sex with minors.
Jonathan Tyler, 20, was arrested Sept. 19 after police found evidence that he'd had a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old girl and desired to have a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl.
Tyler traveled to Beaverton to meet the 13-year-old victim for a sexual relationship on more than one occasion. He also communicated through a social media application his desire to have a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl.
On Sept. 19, Tyler traveled to Beaverton to meet the 15-year-old. Instead, he was arrested by Beaverton Police detectives after arriving at the location.
Evidence was presented to a Washington County Grand Jury on Sept. 25. The grand jury indicted Tyler on second-degree rape; first-degree sex abuse; two first-degree counts of online sexual corruption of a minor; and two counts of luring a minor.
Tyler is in custody at the Washington County Jail.
Due to his work with youths, Beaverton Police believe there may be more victims. Anyone with information is asked to call 503-629-0111 and speak to a Beaverton Police officer.
