SEASIDE — A Seaside man was arrested Thursday for allegedly molesting a child on several occasions.

The allegations are based on several incidents from 2007 to 2011 when the child was between the ages of 5- and 9-years-old. Seaside police arrested Keith Davis, 46, who has been charged with five counts of first-degree sexual abuse and five counts of first-degree sodomy.

Davis is a former custodian at Seaside Heights Elementary School. Police say they do not believe he was using his position with the school to gain access to the victim in this case.

Davis is being held at the Clatsop County Jail on $500,000 bail. His arraignment is scheduled for later this month if indicted.

“If anyone does believe any similar incidents did occur based on his employment at the school, they are encouraged to come forward,” Deputy District Attorney Dawn Buzzard said.

Those with further information are advised to call Seaside Police Detective Bill Barnes at 503-738-6311.
