Police search for more victims of alleged Craigslist attacker

TIGARD, Ore. - Police say it's likely there are more victims in the case of a Tigard man accused of sexually assaulting women he met on Craigslist.

Tigard police arrested 52-year-old Ronald M. Leistiko last week after searching his home at 12320 SW 128th Ave in Tigard. He faces a long list of charges including rape and kidnapping.

Investigators say Leistiko targeted escorts and strippers he met on Craigslist. The victims ranged in age from 14 to 35, police said.

He's charged with assaulting three women, but an undercover officer believes there are likely dozens more who are afraid to call police.

Police say they won't charge admitted prostitutes if they come forward to report they were raped.

Anyone who may have information or possible involvement is urged to contact either Portland Police Bureau Detective C. Waddell at (503) 823-0697 or Officer M. Burkeen at (503) 823-0424.

In addition, callers can also contact Tigard Police Detective Kevin Dresser at (503) 718-2576.
