Officers with the Portland Police Bureau’s Sex Crimes Unit arrested a 27-year-old in connection with a 2010 assault of a then 15-year-old girl.

In March of this year, a 21-year-old woman told investigators she had been assaulted by Wesley Zhang at a park in 2010.

The woman told detectives that Zhang had first contacted her in 2006 through a game on the internet. According to police, he told the girl that she was his girlfriend.

Zhang started to engage in sexual behavior with the girl when she was 14 over the phone and on Skype, and when she was 15 he arranged for her to come to Portland from her home in Washington.

Working with the victim, detectives developed probable cause for an arrest. Zhang was taken into custody without incident and booked into the Multnomah County Jail.

Zhang will be arraigned Friday on charges of sex abuse and luring of a minor.

Investigators believe Zhang may have more victims, and ask anyone with information related to the case to call 503-823-0595 or email Detective Jeff Myers.
