PORTLAND, OR (NWNN) – A 27-year-old man has been arrested, accused of sex abuse.

Portland police say Wesley Zhang was taken into custody in connection with a 2010 sexual assault.

The investigation started earlier this year, when a 21-year-old woman reported to police that she was sexually assaulted at a park by Zhang in 2010. Detectives learned that the suspect first contacted the victim in 2006, when she was 11-years-old through an internet game.

Zhang was booked into the Multnomah County Jail and is expected to be arraigned today.

Due to information found during the investigation, detectives believe that there may be more victims.

Anyone with information on this case or other victims should contact Portland Police.
