PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A man who moved to Portland in February and had been working as a vacuum salesman is facing criminal charges including rape, kidnapping and criminal impersonation of a peace officer.

Tavon Dorsey-Hurtt, 25, was arraigned in court Wednesday.

The probable cause affidavit for his arrest has been sealed and no details were immediately released by police about this investigation.

His indictment states the alleged crimes occurred on Aug. 20. On the charge of impersonating an officer, it states he used "false law enforcement identification, consisting of a badge and an identification car."

The Multnomah County Jail website lists his booking time as 11:11 p.m. Tuesday, however a jail booking photo was not made available until Wednesday evening. 

Court documents state Dorsey-Hurtt has lived in three to four places over the last year and moved to Portland in February.

He has worked for the last month selling Kirby Vacuums, according to court documents.

Those documents state Dorsey-Hurtt has two children, one living with the mother in Mississippi.

Dorsey-Hurtt is due back in court Sept. 3. He is facing charges of first-degree rape, first-degree kidnapping, first-degree sex abuse, four-degree assault and criminal impersonation of a peace officer.

Court documents state he did not know the victim.
