A man suspected of committing sex crimes in 2011 is now facing charges for sexually assaulting a 24-year-old woman in 2017.

The Portland Police Bureau said 63-year-old Curtis Clinton Williams was indicted by a Multnomah County Grand Jury Thursday on several charges including first-degree rape, first-degree sodomy, first-degree sexual abuse and coercion.

Police said Williams offered a 24-year-old homeless woman a motel room in Southeast Portland to stay for night of May 18.

According to police, Williams sexually assaulted the victim after they entered the motel room. He allegedly kept the woman in the room against her will for several hours. She was eventually able to escape and ran to a nearby restaurant for help.

Williams has been in police custody since June 8 on charges related to a different 2011 sexual assault case.

Police arrested Williams after a sexual assault forensic evidence (SAFE) kit related to a sexual assault case in September 2011 was submitted for testing. The results linked Williams to the case.

The Portland Police Bureau received a Sexual Assault Kit Initiative grant in 2015. Since that time, detectives have been in the process of testing, contacting survivors and investigating cases stemming from the 1,754 untested kits in the possession of the Portland Police Bureau.
