Bend Man Accused Of Rape, Police Search For More Victims

BEND, OR -- Bend Police say a 22-year-old accused of raping an 18-year-old he met on Tinder may have committed other sex crimes. Investigators say the young woman began communicating with Hutson Naylor on Tinder in mid-February, then continued talking with her via Snapchat. 

They arranged to meet at his home in the 1400 block of NW Cumberland Ave. on February 21. She says Naylor gave her alcohol. The 18-year-old reported they initially engaged in consensual sex, but when it became painful, she said "no" and told Naylor it hurt. He did not stop. As the teen tried to leave after this incident, Naylor allegedly forced sexual contact and did not stop when she said no, then choked her and attempted to initiate a third sexual encounter.  

On March 8, Naylor was arrested at his job in the 1100 block of SE Centennial Street on charges of first-degree rape, first-degree sodomy and strangulation. 

Through their investigation, Bend Police detectives discovered Naylor had previously been accused of similar incidents in the Eugene area. He was the subject of four reports alleging sexual assault filed with Eugene Police Department in 2017, as well as a fifth in 2021, but was never charged with a crime in relation to those reports. The circumstances alleged in Eugene are similar to what's reported in Bend.

BPD want to speak to anyone who may have connected with Naylor on Tinder, Snapchat or other online dating apps. His Tinder profile username is “fudgebadger” and his Snapchat username is “tweak101.” Anyone with additional information is asked to contact nonemergency dispatch at 541-693-6911 and reference case #2023-00011636.
