Sex Abuse Investigation Leads to Arrest of Tigard Man (Photo) - 10/29/19

A sex abuse investigation which began in the late spring culminated yesterday with the arrest of the suspect, Louis Howard Johnson (DOB 071063) of Tigard. Johnson was indicted by a Washington County Grand Jury on October 28, 2019. Johnson was taken into custody without incident at the Greenburg Oaks Apartments where he is employed. Johnson was later lodged in the Washington County Jail on six counts of Unlawful Sexual Penetration in the First Degree and seven counts of Sexual Abuse in the First Degree. The investigation involved multiple female victims who were juveniles at the time of the alleged abuse, which spanned approximately five years.

For a number of years, Johnson had been employed at two known rental properties in Tigard-The Tigarden Court and the Greenburg Oaks Apartments. The crimes for which Johnson is charged occurred approximately fifteen years ago. Based upon the suspect’s employment and its inherent access to residents over the years, including children, investigators are questioning whether there may be additional victims.

If anyone has information regarding contact with the suspect or information relative to this investigation, they are urged to contact Tigard Police. Tips can be provided via email at: tips@tigard-or.gov or by telephone at 503-718-COPS (2677).
