MEDFORD, Ore. — Medford Police believe that there may be more victims of a man arrested last week on rape and sexual assault charges, the agency said on Tuesday.

Officers arrested 24-year-old Alejandro Alcala-Arroyo on Friday, accusing him in the rape and sexual assault of two juvenile girls.

"Each juvenile independently reported being brought to 'the woods' by Alcala-Arroyo where each were sexually assaulted," Medford Police said. "Each female believed the perpetrator’s name to be 'Alejandro Alcala.'"

Medford Police is still investigating the two cases, and says that it has reason to believe that there are more victims in the community.

MPD is requesting anyone with information regarding Alcala-Arroyo call Medford Police Department Detective Diane Sandler (541-774-2247) or Medford Police Department Cultural Outreach Coordinator Lilia Caballero (541-840-1295), reference case #20-4494.

Alcala-Arroyo remains in the Jackson County Jail on charges of Rape in the First Degree, three counts of Sex Abuse in the First Degree, Rape in the Second Degree, and Attempted Rape in the First Degree. His bail has been set at $250,000.

The agency included the following statement in Spanish:



El 30 de marzo, 2020 fué arrestado Alejandro Alcalá-Arroyo (24 años) por cargos de ataque sexual a dos jovencitas menores de edad. Los dos casos son independientemente separados uno del otro. Las jóvenes reportaron que Alcalá-Arroyo las llevó al “bosque” y las atacó sexualmente. Cada una de ellas cree que el que las atacó se llama “Alejandro Alcalá.” El Departamento de Policía de Medford continúa investigando éstos crímenes y creemos que posiblemente existan más víctimas en la comunidad. Por lo tanto, la policía le pide al público si alguien tiene información sobre Alejandro Alcalá-Arroyo comunicarse con la detective Diane Sandler al 541-774-2247 o con Lilia Caballero al 541-840-1295, Coordinadora de Asuntos Culturales del Departamento de Policia de Medford.
