Army recruiter in Gresham accused of felony sex crimes
A 40-year-old Troutdale man serving in the U.S. Army has been arrested for alleged felony sex crimes, police say.
Antonio Francisco Marquez was arrested around 6 p.m. on Friday, May 11, under suspicion of committing three counts of first-degree sex abuse, according to a news release from the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office.
Before his arrest, Marquez was serving at the Gresham Recruiting Station and as a parent volunteer at Troutdale Elementary School.
"There is no indication that his status in the Army or as a parent volunteer facilitated his contact with the victim in the case," a police spokesman said in a news release.
Police say the investigation continues at this time. Anyone with relevant information is asked to call the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office Tip Line at 503-988-0560.
Marquez is currently incarcerated at Inverness Jail in Northeast Portland, according to jail records.
