A Corvallis man pleaded guilty to attempted first-degree sex abuse and failure to appear in Benton County Circuit Court Friday.

Kevin Quintero-Serrano, 23, was arrested in January after a woman reported he groped her while she was out for a walk in the neighborhood near Corvallis High School on Buchanan Avenue. The woman reported she knocked Quintero-Serrano down and ran away before calling police, who found him a few blocks away.

Court records show Quintero-Serrano was released on bail in February, but failed to appear to a hearing in April. Jail rosters show he was arrested again in May.
