FBI Portland and the United States Attorney for the District of Oregon are Seeking Potential Victims of Alleged Sexual Abuse by a Former Oregon Based Medical Professional
PORTLAND, OR—The FBI and the United States Attorney for the District of Oregon are seeking to identify anyone who believes they may have been the victim of sexual abuse by Andrew Davoodian, a former Oregon-based anesthesiologist.
On November 8, 2022, Mr. Davoodian was indicted on one count of sexually abusive contact. According to court documents, on or about July 5, 2019, while on an aircraft departing from Portland, Oregon, Davoodian knowingly engaged in, attempted to engage in, caused, and attempted to cause sexual contact with a 14-year-old victim.
Investigators believe there may be additional victims and are asking anyone with information to come forward.
“These allegations are extremely distressing and tragically, we believe there could be more victims of sexual abuse,” says Kieran L. Ramsey, special agent in charge of the FBI Portland Field Office. “We are now urgently seeking to identify any other victims as a result. One of our primary goals at the FBI is to protect our most vulnerable, our children. If anyone believes they may have been the victim of sexual abuse at the hands of Andrew Davoodian, please contact the FBI immediately. We are here to help those who have been victimized, while we also protect others from further harm.”
If you have any information concerning this case or believe you, or someone you know, may have helpful information, please contact the FBI Portland Field Office at (503) 224-4181 or contact local law enforcement.
