A near-two month investigation by Oregon State Police (OSP) Criminal Investigations Division detectives, with the assistance of Clackamas County District Attorney's Office and Deschutes County Sheriff's Office, led to the arrest Friday of a Portland-area man on allegations he sexually abused a juvenile age girl.
According to OSP Sergeant Chris Seber, on July 22, 2011, OSP detectives, with the help of Portland Police Bureau, arrested CHRISTOPHER SCOTT ANDERSEN, age 40, during a traffic stop on the following charges:
  • Rape in the First Degree (2 counts)
  • Sodomy in the First Degree (2 counts)
  • Unlawful Sexual Penetration in the First Degree (2 counts)
  • Sex Abuse in the First Degree (2 counts)
The initial investigation started with the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office and was forwarded to OSP detectives. ANDERSEN moved back to southeast Portland after living in the central Oregon area for over a year. OSP detectives from the Bend and Portland offices jointly investigated the allegations that ANDERSEN sexually abused the known victim who is under the age of 10.
ANDERSEN was lodged in the Clackamas County Jail.
