(GRESHAM, Ore.) - Gresham Police Department say they arrested a man for 200 counts of sexual assault of an animal, and 200 counts of aggravated animal abuse.

Brandon Vongthongthrip

Special Agent Austin Wallace with the Oregon Humane Society, says 20-year old Brandon Vongthongthrip was lodged at the Multnomah County Detention Center on 1.5 million dollars bail.

"Authorities first learned of Mr. Vongthongthrip's criminal activity when an anonymous caller contacted investigators at the Oregon Humane Society," Wallace said.

"Special Agents from the Humane Society worked closely with Gresham Detectives to locate the suspect and rescue the victimized animal."

Wallace explained that investigators located key evidence when they discovered numerous photographs posted on the internet of Mr. Vongthongthrip sexually abusing his dog, an eight year-old Red Nose American Pit bull named Rocky.

"During an interview Mr. Vongthongthrip admitted to assaulting Rocky over 400 times. This abuse occurred over a five year period. Rocky was removed from the residence by Multnomah County Animal Control and will undergo an examination and treatment for his injuries in the following days."

Vongthongthrip has no prior arrests, according to Wallace, nor does he have a history of mental illness, he has been a life-long resident of East Multnomah County, and currently resides in Gresham with his mother and her fiancé.

There is no additional information to be released at this time.

I hope this piece of garbage has had his shots, poor dog. The bail is too high, he needs to be in public where we can laugh at him every day of his miserable life.

"investigators located key evidence when they discovered numerous photographs posted on the internet" - just another example of how far law enforcement has to catch up with technology. Maybe if they were doing more active searching for cases like this as opposed to making right wing comments in support of their fellow officers commiting acts of violence agains innocent citizens, this freak would have been caught long ago.

Longtime heard about f/t/d, but this is first actual report ever encountered...dare I ask his political association, if any ??


Daniel May 3, 2009 11:28 am (Pacific time)

Arc Dome May 3, 2009 2:08 am (Pacific time)

So...was this guy the pitcher or the catcher?


Tamara May 2, 2009 5:23 pm (Pacific time)

K#@ll him.

This guy is a danger to society.

Editor, Maybe so Tamara, but you can't suggest that OK?  Let's all stay above the board.  Perhaps you suggest the death penalty?  That you can say.  I know this is a sad and terrible story.

nothing new under the sun (we got syphilis from sheep)except the 1.5 million dollar bail, you would think he was Madoff not a nutcase.
