GRESHAM, Ore. – Jerry Dean Guess, 69, of Gresham was arrested on Friday after allegedly harassing a 15-year-old girl and asking her to perform sex acts on him in exchange for money.
Gresham police responded to a call on May 10 from a girl reporting she was being followed by an unidentified man.
According to Detective John Rasmussen, the girl said she was walking on Southeast 202nd Avenue near Southeast Stark Street in Gresham when Guess drove by slowly in a 1990s Ford Thunderbird.
Guess pulled alongside the girl and asked her to perform sex acts on him in exchange for money.
The girl ran home and told her mother, who attempted to confront the man as he sped away. The girl and her mother called the police. They provided a license plate number and description of the man.
According to Rasmussen, this was the third time Guess propositioned the girl.
Guess allegedly began following the girl in April 2013. Each time, he would drive by her slowly, call her by the wrong name and say he recognized her from a strip club.
Guess was charged with luring a minor and booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center.
