Police arrested a wanted sex offender who was hiding out in a Gresham apartment.
Deputies with the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office Warrant Strike Team and members of the U.S. Marshals Service arrested Kenneth Keith Muskevitsch, 28, in the 300 block of Northeast Eastman Parkway at 7:40 p.m. Wednesday, March 20, according to sheriff's officer records.
He was wanted on a felony fugitive warrant out of Clark County, Wash., and for violating his parole in Polk County on a 2006 conviction of second-degree attempted rape and sodomy, according to jail records. He also was convicted of felony first-degree sodomy and sex abuse in 1998 when he was 14 years old.
Jail officials have released him to the custody of Polk County officials. Television news accounts of his most recent arrest report that he was staying with a Gresham woman and her child, and that he's been wanted by police for two months. He also has been arrested for failing to register as a sex offender four times in three counties.
