PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A convicted rapist-kidnapper was arrested after the Multnomah County Department of Community Justice issued a warrant when he failed to report to his parole officer and cut off his electronic monitoring device.

Dennis John Davis, 58, was designated a dangerous offender in 1993 when he was sentenced to prison for rape, sodomy and kidnapping he committed in 1990. He has also been convicted of property crimes, rape, non-sexual violence and other sex offenses since then.

The Multnomah County Department of Community Justice said he has been sanctioned to jail 10 times since he was released from prison on June 12, 2015.

He has evaded authorities by removing his GPS tracker several other times in recent years.

Beaverton Police found his GPS tracker near the Beaverton Transit Center and he was later arrested in Beaverton.
