Gresham Man Arrested for Alleged Sex Abuse Aboard an Aircraft
On the night of Wednesday, June 15, 2016, FBIagents made a probable cause arrest of Chad Cameron Camp, age 26, on one federal count of abusive sexual contact. Port of Portland officers had detained Camp as he arrived on an American Airlines flight from Dallas/Ft. Worth earlier in the evening, and they continue to assist with the investigation.
Camp was seated on the plane next to a 13-year-old child who was flying unaccompanied. Shortly after takeoff, a witness says she saw Camp touching the child inappropriately. The flight crew immediately moved Camp away from the child, and the airline requested a law enforcement response upon landing.
Camp is expected to have an initial appearance at 1:30 p.m. today in U.S. District Court in Portland.
All defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
