PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Police arrested a man accused of sexually abusing a woman at the Portland Community College library.

The victim told Portland police in November that a man she didn’t know sat next to her and touched her inappropriately. The man left when the woman slammed her books shut and told him to leave her alone.

According to court documents, a police detective watched surveillance video to confirm the woman’s account and noticed the suspect also rubbed his leg against the leg of another woman.

The detective got the suspect’s name from a confidential informant. He then obtained a search warrant that allowed him to determine the man’s cell phone was at the library at the time of the alleged assault.

Court records show 54-year-old Kevin Taylor was charged with harassment and third-degree sexual abuse. He pleaded not guilty Thursday.
