BEAVERTON, OR (KPTV) -

A man who gave a 13-year-old girl marijuana and then sexually abused her at his Beaverton apartment is known to befriend homeless youth in downtown Portland, according to police.

Beaverton police arrested Nathan Khingratsaphone, 27, on charges of first-degree sexual abuse and second-degree rape Friday.

Detectives said the investigation began Oct. 9.

A 13-year-old girl told investigators she met Khingratsaphone on the Portland waterfront and he offered her marijuana and said he would give her a ride back to his apartment in Beaverton.

According to a probable cause affidavit, the teen is a boy who identifies as a girl and ran away from a youth facility in Portland. 

She told police Khingratsaphone approached her and offered her marijuana, which she accepted and they both smoked, court documents state. The teen said she smokes marijuana often, but the marijuana the suspect gave her "seemed stronger" and she got "stoned super fast," according to court documents. 

A probable cause affidavit states the teen told police she "wasn't thinking straight anymore" and went with Khingratsaphone back to his apartment, where she fell asleep on his bedroom floor. She said she woke up to Khingratsaphone on top of her taking off her clothes, the affidavit states. 

Police said Khingratsaphone sexually abused the teen. He then gave her cash and dropped her off at a MAX station, according to investigators. 

Police said they learned Khingratsaphone often meets homeless youth near the waterfront and Pioneer Courthouse Square and has brought them home with him in the past.

The Beaverton Police Department believes there are possibly more victims of Khingratsaphone.

Anyone with information about the suspect or other possible victims is asked to call police at 503-629-0111 and reference case 15-2790177.
