Posted: Updated:

A Forest Grove man is facing sexual abuse charges following a four month investigation, police said.

Donald J. Wickwire, 55, is accused of abusing three girls ranging in age from 5 to 12.

The crimes were committed between 1997 and 2005, police said.

Fox 12 learned the investigation began when two of the victims told a pastor about the abuse. The pastor, as a mandatory reporter, relayed the information to police, investigators said.

The third victim was identified as the investigation unfolded, officers said.

Police arrested Wickwire at his home Monday and took him to the Washington County Jail.

He faces five counts of sexual abuse in the first degree. His bail is set at $1,250,000.

Anyone with information related to these cases is asked to contact the Forest Grove Police Department at (503) 992-3260.
