JOSEPHINE COUNTY, OR (KPTV) -

A Josephine County man was arrested Tuesday after police said information from a 10-month investigation revealed he had repeatedly molested an underage girl.   

Seth Ray Milton, 28, was taken into custody by Oregon State Police officers and U.S. Marshals at his home in Wilderville. He had had an outstanding felony warrant for his arrest from August 2016.

OSP detectives said they initially received information about Milton from an alleged victim who was no longer living in the area.

After a 10-month investigation, OSP said they determined that Milton had been abusing a young relative from the age of 6 to 14 years old.

Investigators said they also found Milton had been observed associating with other young girls around the victim’s age.

Milton is charged with three counts of rape, two counts of sodomy and one count of sexual abuse. He is being held in the Josephine County Jail.

Anyone with information regarding Milton should contact Oregon State Police.
