Sex offender uses Occupy Portland camp as address

Raymond Allen Curtis, 40, registered with police on Thursday

A sex offender who registered with the Portland police on Thursday gave the Occupy Portland protest camp as his home address.

Raymond Allen Curtis, 40, registered as required by law with the police on Oct. 12. A copy of the registration report obtained by the Portland Tribune says he is homeless and living in 'Lownsdale Square/Occupy.'

Lownsdale Square is one of two adjacent city parks occupied by the protesters near City Hall on Southwest Fourth Avenue. The other is Chapman Square.

The report describes Curtis as a white man, 6-foot-1, 210 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes. He has a dragon tattoo on his right arm and skull tattoos on his chest and both knees.

Curtis was convicted of a sex crime in California, according to Portland police Lt. Robert King, the bureau's public information officer.

Registered sex offenders frequently have trouble obtaining permanent addresses. It is not unusual for them to live in homeless camps.
