A Gresham sex abuse suspect used social media to communicate with his victims, according to police.

Travis Mathieu Dick, 23, was arrested Thursday on charges including 11 counts of first-degree sex abuse, five counts of third-degree sex abuse and six counts of second-degree rape.

Investigators said the crimes involved a 13-year-old girl and a 15-year-old girl.

Police said Dick contacted the girls in the community and used social media “to further the abusive relationship.”

Detectives believe there may be additional victims and want to talk to anyone who had inappropriate contact with the suspect. Tips can be reported to Detective Turnage at 503-618-3136.
