FBI Searches For Potential Sex Abuse Victims

PORTLAND, OR -- A former Oregon-based doctor is accused of sexually abusing a 14-year-old on an airplane departing Portland in July of 2019, and federal investigators say there may be more victims. Andrew Davoodian was indicted last month on one count of Sexually Abusive Contact. "We do have indicators that tell us, unfortunately, there probably are other victims out there that we have no idea about," says Kieran Ramsey, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Portland Field Office, "So, we’re trying to proceed in a manner that we can, not only identify victims, but treat them appropriately, get them any services that we can, and then make sure that we see justice."

Davoodian was an anesthesiologist at OHSU. He is not yet in custody, according to SAC Ramsey. He tells KBND News cases like this are tough because potential victims could be anywhere. 

"It can be extremely difficult for us to make sure that we are acting with a sense of urgency to identify any other victims that we don’t know about right now," says Ramsey, "So, that’s why we’re trying to put that out there, as widely as possible, but recognizing we’re doing it with very limited information that we’re sharing. And that’s because our investigation is still ongoing."

Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact the FBI Portland Field Office at 503-224-4181, or contact local law enforcement.
