Mountain resident John David Bowe, 48, was arrested Oct. 25
by the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office Child Abuse Team, in conjunction with
the U.S. Marshal’s Office in Pomona, Calif.
According to authorities, Bowe has been a registered sex
offender in California since March 2002.
Bowe is now being held in the San Bernardino County Jail on
two counts of sexual abuse in the first degree; two counts of sodomy in the first degree; one count of
luring a minor; and one count of online sexual corruption of a child. He is
awaiting extradition to Oregon.
Bowe was arrested as part of an investigation that alleged
he had sexually assaulted a 13-year-old female in Sandy, in the early morning
hours of Oct. 16.
Detectives were alerted to Bowe after they were notified he
had frequented locations where children gather. He is believed to have had
contact with multiple families with minor children, according to the sheriff’s
Bowe was known in the Mountain community having partnered in
a sandwich shop on Hwy. 26 a short distance east of Alder Creek, and more
recently he operated a barbecue stand in the parking area in front of Thriftway
in the Hoodland Shopping Center in Welches.
County Sheriff’s Office detectives are searching for
additional victims and ask anyone who had contact with Bowe while children were
present to let investigators know. The Sheriff’s Office Tip Line is
