The Lebanon Police Department arrested a Corvallis man at his home Wednesday morning on three counts of first-degree sex abuse and four counts of private indecency, according to a news release.
Elias Gonzalez-Perez, 35, was taken into custody without incident and later transported to the Linn County Jail.
Gonzalez-Perez's arrest followed an investigation into a report alleging inappropriate contact with two minors between 2014 and 2016 in Lebanon. Gonzalez-Perez knew the individuals, the release said, and both were under the age of 14 at the time.
The Lebanon Police Department has had previous contacts with the suspect, including a city ordinance violation and a traffic stop. Gonzalez-Perez has not been the subject of any other criminal investigations by the department.
The investigation continues. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Lebanon Police Department Detective Taylor Jackson at 541-258-4357.
