Sherwood police report that they responded to a welfare check on July 1, involving a man later identified as Johnathon Moore, 33, who was allegedly dragging an intoxicated female around a swimming pool deck.

While Moore was reported to initially have fled the scene, he was apprehended by Sherwood officers and Washington County sheriff's deputies, according to a news release from the Sherwood Police Department.

During an investigation interview, police said the victim told them she was approached by Moore while walking home and attempted to fight him off. Officers believe they interrupted a sexual assault in progress.

A Washington County grand jury subsequently indicted Moore on July 12 on first-degree kidnapping, three counts of first-degree sexual abuse, first-degree attempted rape and fourth-degree assault charges.

He entered a plea of not guilty to all charges.
