A 34-year-old Redmond man has been arrested in Coos County, accused of sexually assaulting his 23-year-old companion from Bend as they camped at the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area.
Ty Armand Kaufman was booked into the Coos County Jail on Wednesday on first-degree rape and sexual abuse and fourth-degree assault charges. He was held on $760,000 bail.
Kaufman and his traveling companion were camping at the Box Car area off Horsfall Road, according to the sheriff’s office.
Deputies say the woman walked to a nearby ATV rental business to report the assault.
