GRESHAM, Ore. (AP) -- Police in the east Portland suburb of Gresham say a 21-year-old former lifeguard at Mount Hood Community College is accused of sexually abusing three underage victims.

Samuel Patrick Melthratter was arrested Wednesday at his home after a Multnomah County grand jury indicted him on multiple charges that included sex abuse and sodomy.

Gresham police say the man had contact with the victims while he worked as a lifeguard. Officers believe the abuse occurred last summer. Police say there may be more victims.
