LEBANON, Ore. – An 18-year-old man is accused of multiple sex crimes in Lebanon, police said.

Elijah Baker faces four counts of first-degree sex abuse, first-degree sodomy and using a child in a display of sexually-explicit conduct.

Police said Baker was arrested at his home in Lebanon at about 1 p.m. on Tuesday.

His arrest is the result of an investigation that started due to a report he’d had inappropriate contact with a minor child using electronic communication, police said. They said the child is under the age of 12. The crimes allegedly occurred at Baker’s residence over the past several months.

Detectives are investigating to see if there are additional victims.

The investigation is ongoing. If you have information, contact Lebanon Police Detective Sergeant Taylor Jackson.
