PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A sexual assault suspect cut off his GPS monitor and fled authorities, according to deputies.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office said Aaron J. Emery, 30, was arrested on October 18 after a DNA match linked him to the sexual assault of a teen in March 2015.

He was charged with public indecency and third-degree sexual abuse.

Emery bailed out of jail on October 19 and was moved to the Washington County Community Corrections Center to finish serving time on an unrelated fourth-degree felony assault charge, deputies said.

Inmates in the community corrections center may leave during the day if they’re working a job or receiving treatment. Since Emery worked for a restaurant, he was monitored by a GPS ankle bracelet.

Deputies said he cut that bracelet off and didn’t return to the community corrections center.

A parole violation no-bail warrant has been issued for the suspect’s arrest.
