Former jail deputy, security guard charged in sex assault
A one-time corrections deputy and former security guard has been arrested for first-degree rape and sodomy after authorities say he sexually assaulted a Hillsboro woman who was unconscious.
Jorge Ulises Serrano was arrested inside his Woodburn home on the 1600 block of Alexandra Avenue on the morning of Dec. 7, according to a news release.
The 28-year-old faces one count of first-degree rape and three counts of first-degree sodomy, according to court records. He is currently being held behind bars on $250,000 bail.
Police say additional charges may be forthcoming.
An investigation began Oct. 15 after Washington County's violent crimes unit learned that Serrano had allegedly posted an "intimate video" on the internet without the consent of the woman filmed.
Detectives say the video was filmed in the spring of 2015, when Serrano worked as an armed security guard throughout the Portland metro area.
While on the clock, he allegedly met a tenant who lived in an apartment complex on the 19000 block of Northwest Evergreen Parkway in Hillsboro.
"He drove the tenant to a building nearby and engaged in sexual acts with her, which he filmed and later posted online without her knowledge," according to a news release. "After his shift ended, Mr. Serrano met the woman again and then sexually assaulted her while she was unconscious."
He posted the video online later, while working as a jail deputy for the Jefferson County Sherrif's Office. Officials say he worked at the jail from Jan. 3, 2017 to November, 2018 and was fired before jail staff knew of the allegations.
Oregon State Police say Serrano appears to have uploaded multiple videos of women without their knowledge. The investigation continues and police have not yet identified all the women involved.
