News Release
Police Request Help With Additional Information on Man Arrested for Encouraging Child Sex Abuse - 04/15/19

On April 3, 2019 a Washington County Grand Jury indicted 52-year-old Eric Warren Brown of Tualatin for 10 counts of encouraging child sex abuse in the first degree.

The investigation began in 2018 when Tualatin Police received information from the Department of Justice stemming from an Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) task force tip.  The tip alleged Brown was sharing child pornography on internet sites such as Tumblr, performing internet searches and downloading child pornography on personal devices.

Subsequent to a court authorized search warrant, law enforcement located more than 300 images of prepubescent and pubescent children engaged in sexually explicit activity on Brown’s internet accounts as well as his personal devices.

Detectives have reason to believe Brown has been involved in similar criminal behavior for many years and are asking for help from the public with any information that can assist them with the investigation.

Anyone with information about Brown is asked to call Tualatin Police Detective Matthew Messina at 503.691.4843.

A booking photo of Brown can be obtained through the Washington County Jail.
