Gresham Man Accused of Molesting Two Boys
A Gresham man is behind bars after authorities say he sexually assaulted two boys. Richard Arscoli Jr is accused of molesting two boys under the age of 10. Gresham Police say he met the boys at Rockwood Central Park.
Investigators also fear that more victims may be out there. They say the 20-year old had been molesting one of the boys since 2012. According to a probable cause affidavit filed in court, Ascoli admitted to performing oral sex on one boy in the park bathroom.
It took police 5 days to arrest Arscoli after he admitted to the crimes. In that time he abused yet another boy. A Gresham Police Department spokesperson told the Oregonian he's looking into why there was a delay in making the arrest.
