West Eugene man charged with sexually abusing tot.
A Eugene man was arrested on allegations that he sexually assaulted and photographed a 2 1/2 -year-old boy last month, Eugene police said.
Detectives are concerned that the man may have had contact with other children, Eugene police Sgt. Scott McKee said Monday.
Police arrested Barrak Alan Fikso, 39, who goes by the nickname Bear, at his home Friday. He was charged with two counts of first-degree sex abuse, one count of first-degree sodomy, one count of second-degree encouraging child sexual abuse and a count of using a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct. He was being held in the Lane County Jail on $675,000 bail.
On May 31, Fikso lured the boy into his apartment near Highway 99 and Roosevelt Boulevard in Eugene, where the boy was assaulted and photographed, McKee said.
Investigators seized Fikso's computer and are looking for evidence of other victims, McKee said. Anyone with information is asked to contact detective Matt Herbert of the Eugene police violent crimes unit, 682-5147.
