Detectives Arrest Sex Abuse Suspect

April 14, 2005 00:00


April 14, 2005, at about 6:10 a.m. detectives from the Portland Police Sexual Assault Detail, assisted by East Precinct uniform officers, arrested 35-year-old Andrew Stuart Bourland for Sex Abuse I (two counts), Sex Abuse II, Endangering the Welfare of a Minor (three counts), attempting to display a child in sexually explicit conduct, and furnishing alcohol to a minor (three counts).

This arrest came after an investigation initiated in January 2005 after it was reported that Bourland had been harboring runaway teenage boys and sexually abusing them. Detectives said there are multiple victims Bourland allegedly lured from the Newberg and Yamill areas to his home in Northeast Portland.

Police had Bourland under surveillance just before he was arrested and took him into custody at about 6:10 a.m. a short distance from his house in the 10800 block of Northeast Broadway. He was riding his bicycle at the time of his arrest.

Detectives served a search warrant at his house at about 7:45 a.m. and collected evidence.

Bourland was booked into the Multnomah County detention center and is scheduled to be arraigned tomorrow. His bail is $530,000.

This is an ongoing investigation and detectives believe there may be additional victims they have not spoken with. Anyone with information about this case is asked to call Detective Molly Daul at 503-823-0697.
