Fugitive Alert: Ramon Perez Reyes

By Anna Song and KATU Web Staff

TIGARD, Ore. - Imagine giving someone your trust, and access to your children, then having them turn around and break that trust in the worst way.

That is what police say a Tigard man did, and now he is on the run from the law.

His name is Ramon Perez Reyes, a young man police say lived in a Tigard apartment complex off Southwest 76th and Bonita.

It was there, Detective David Hockin with the Tigard Police Department says, that Perez Reyes molested a 12-year-old girl and a 7-year-old boy.

"The 7-year-old, of course, is just very young and I think he realizes, but I don't think he fully understands or grasps, what has happened and how serious it is," Hockin said.

Hockin said it is unusual for victims to be of different genders.

He believes the suspect may have fled back to Mexico at one point and returned, even to the Tigard-Tualatin area.

An arrest warrant has been issued for Perez Reyes on 15 counts of molestation.

"My biggest concern is that he's obviously living somewhere and there's a good chance he has access to other kids that same age, whether it be at an apartment or a house," Hockin said. "So he could be out there perpetrating right now for all we know."

Police say given this man's ties in the area, there is a chance he is still around and they hope anyone who sees him or who has information about his whereabouts will call 911 or the Tigard Police Department.
