News Release
Magazine Salesman Arrested for Harassment - 08/22/16

On August 21, 2016, at 3:22 pm Corvallis Police Department officers responded to an address on SE Bayou Place after a female resident reported a door-to-door magazine salesman touched her in an offensive manner and made sexually suggestive statements to her. The suspect, 20-year-old Laderrick McCray of Mississippi, came to the victim's residence as an employee of an out of state magazine sales company. McCray was very pushy and flirtatious, and led the victim from the doorway of her residence by putting his arm around her lower back. He then insisted that she let him come inside the residence, which she refused to do. His demeanor and comments made the victim uncomfortable and concerned for her personal safety.

McCray ultimately left the residence after the female returned inside her house, locked the door, and called police. Based on the suspect description, McCray was later located and arrested on the crime of Harassment. He was lodged at the Benton County Correctional Facility on that charge with a bail of $12,500.
