Man charged with sexually assaulting own uncle and 82-year-old grandmother

NORTH PORTLAND, Ore. -- A Portland man is accused of sexually assaulting his 82-year-old grandmother and 49-year-old uncle.

Police say the suspect, Willie Andre Johnson, 34, is a registered sex offender who was previously convicted of rape.

Sgt. Pete Simpson, a spokesman for Portland Police Bureau, says Johnson went to a North Portland home Tuesday night.

“He came in and attacked his grandmother in bed,” Simpson said, “and then went and attacked his uncle. The uncle was more physically able to fight back and get him out of the house."

Officers, including a K-9 unit, searched the neighborhood but could not find Johnson.

The next morning a family member reported that Johnson was seen at a Northeast Portland McDonald's restaurant, where he was arrested.

After police nabbed him, there was a problem.

“During the course of being in custody downtown, he complained of some medical issues,” Simpson said.

Johnson was taken to the hospital where he was treated overnight. The next day he was released and booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Attempt Rape in the First Degree, Unlawful Sexual Penetration in the First Degree, Sex Abuse in the First Degree (two counts), Kidnapping in the First Degree, and Assault in the Fourth Degree (Domestic Violence).

Johnson is scheduled to be arraigned Monday morning.

His grandmother was treated at the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. Both she and the uncle are said to be physically OK.
