A Multnomah County grand jury has indicted a 37-year-old man on 14 counts of various crimes, including kidnapping and sexual assault, according to the district attorney’s office.

The secret indictment was unsealed Thursday.

The district attorney’s office said police started an investigation in March 2017 when a woman reported she was sexually assaulted by a man she didn’t know at his place of business.

Police officers arrested Alexander Anderson Wednesday morning in the 8900 block of Northeast Vancouver Way.

Prosecutors allege Anderson kidnapped the woman, terrorized her, sexually assaulted her and strangled her.

Anderson pleaded not guilty to all charges during a Thursday court appearance.
