JCSO Case 24-2631


MEDFORD, Ore. – After a month-long investigation, Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) Special Victims Unit (SVU) detectives arrested a 20-year-old Medford man today for multiple counts of sex abuse of an underage victim. Detectives believe there are additional local victims who have yet to come forward.


Detectives arrested the suspect, Brayden Cyrus Edelman, 20, today at 11:30 a.m. in Medford. He is charged with one count of first-degree sex abuse, and two counts of second-degree sex abuse. Detectives booked and lodged him in the Jackson County Jail.


The JCSO investigation into Edelman started mid-May of this year. Although Edelman lives in Medford, the crimes occurred in White City. JCSO SVU detectives believe Edelman may have other victims. Anyone with information about the pictured suspect is asked to call SVU Detective Jill Wenzel at (541) 770-8928.


This case is under investigation with SVU detectives working additional leads. Further information will come from the Jackson County District Attorney’s office.
