Oregon deputy loses eye after being shot while serving eviction notice
Kaela Doze, daughter of Oregon Deputy Charles Doze, joins ‘Fox & Friends First’ to share news about her father’s recovery after he was shot multiple times while serving an eviction notice at an apartment complex.
Oregon authorities say a registered sex offender, who allegedly used social media to lure “single women with young daughters” and assault them, may have more victims throughout the Pacific Northwest.
Antonio Arredondo, 37, is tied to multiple sexual assault cases “throughout Oregon” that bear similarities to a sexual assault case in Texas involving the suspect, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
“Investigators believe Arredondo uses social media apps such as Facebook to seek out single women with young daughters and pursues romantic relationships with the single mother,” a press release from the sheriff’s office states. “Arredondo [i]s eventually invited into the home of the victims and, over a short period of time, he sexually assaults the mother and or daughter.”
Officials “strongly believe there are additional victims” across the Northwest, the press release says.
