PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A 29-year-old man has been charged for allegedly trying to pay underage girls for sex near a Portland high school.

Portland police received reports on Aug. 21 of a man in a car asking 6 different girls if they needed rides, according to the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office.

Some of the girls were approached near David Douglas High School, police said.

The man allegedly offered to pay some of the girls to get into his car. All of the girls said “no.”

Officers with the Portland Police Bureau’s Sex Crimes Unit arrested Jordan Lin Johnson on Monday in the 17000 block of Southeast Tibbetts Street in Gresham.

Johnson was charged Wednesday with 6 counts of purchasing sex with a minor.

Officials think there may be more victims in this case and are asking anyone who has information to contact Portland police at 503.823.3333.
