Rape kit testing leads to arrest in 2011 Portland sex assault investigation

PORTLAND, Ore. – A 63-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a sex assault investigation that began in 2011.

Clint Curtis Williams was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of first-degree rape, first-degree sodomy, first-degree unlawful sexual penetration and first degree sex abuse. He’s also being held on a charge of failing to register as a sex offender.

Police said the investigation is still ongoing and did not reveal any more details about the case.

Williams’ arrest comes after a previously untested sexual assault forensic evidence (SAFE) kit was tested. The SAFE kit was one of 1,754 previously untested kits that have all now been submitted for testing after the Portland Police Bureau and Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office received grants to fund the testing.

Police encourage survivors of sexual assault that had a SAFE kit performed to call the bureau’s sex crime unit at 503-823-0125.
