Deputies: Sex offender rapes woman 10-days after getting out of jail

WASHINGTON COUNTY, Ore. -- A Washington County man was arrested on suspicion of raping a woman on Monday -- 10 days after he had been released from jail on a separate offense.

Yusuf Dahir Sheikh-Nur, 28, is being held on suspicion of kidnapping and raping the woman at his apartment in Bethany. Bail was set at $2.4 million.

Police say Sheikh-Nur is a known serial sex offender who has been in and out of jail seven times since May 2011. His past charges include rape, harassment, robbery and drug offenses.

Sheikh-Nur is known to target women in his neighborhood, sheriff’s deputies said.

In jail on a harassment charge, Sheikh-Nur had posted bail on Feb. 1 and was released.  Washington County sheriff’s deputies said that on Monday, Sheikh-Nur brought a lady home to his apartment, refused to let her leave and then sexually assaulted her.

Deputies believe there may be more victims.
