Gresham sex offender arrested for public indecency in Boring, Eagle Creek
Michael G. Dick, of Gresham, faces three felony charges
Gresham resident Michael Gordon Dick, a registered sex offender, was arrested on Wednesday, March 25, on accusations of public indecency following a string of incidents in which he allegedly exposed himself in Boring and Eagle Creek.
Authorities received calls on March 24 and March 25 about a naked man walking around and masturbating in the Tickle Creek and Kelso Road area in Boring. The behavior pattern was similar to incidents in Boring and Eagle Creek on Feb. 17 and Dec. 10.
Dick, a 6-foot tall, 170-pound white male, appears bald in his booking photo, but an earlier sketch police provided showed him with long hair and bangs. Police said he was possibly wearing a wig at the time of the incidents.
Following the March calls, investigators obtained a search warrant for Dick, and police officers from Multnomah County, Damascus, and Gresham searched his home and vehicle at 1085 N.E. 24th Street, Gresham.
Police said all of the incidents followed a similar pattern: Dick would drive around in his black pickup and allegedly when he saw women walking in the roadway or working in their yards he would get out of his truck, naked, and start masturbating. During each incident, he left before the victim approached him.
Dick, who faces three counts of public indecency charges, is a registered sex offender as a result of a December 2008 arrest in which he entered an elderly persons home in East Multnomah County fully nude and attempted to assault her. Because of his sex-offender status, the new charges against him were increased to felonies.
He is being held in Clackamas County pending $45,000 bail.JW_DISQUS_ADD_A_COMMENT
