Maintenance man faces burglary and sex charges
A maintenance worker for a property management company faces felony charges after he allegedly entered a woman's Rogue River home multiple times using a master key and forced her into sex, according to police.
Jesse Edward Bradbeer, 34, of the 700 block of Savage Creek Road, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to charges alleging he entered a woman's home and forced her to have sex on four separate occasions in August and November, according to a court document filed in the case.
Bradbeer, who worked for Cascade Management Inc., allegedly began each encounter by holding the victim's arms until she complied with demands, telling her, "Do it or I'll make you do it," the document said. Jackson County Jail records list Bradbeer as 6 feet tall and 260 pounds.
The 37-year-old woman told police she complied with Bradbeer's demands out of fear.
The victim came forward Sunday with the assistance of a church pastor after she disclosed details of the abuse following a religious service, court documents said. Rogue River police took Bradbeer into custody late Monday afternoon at a maintenance shop in the 700 block of North River Road.
While en route to the jail, Bradbeer changed his story "several times," court documents said, first saying he entered the victim's home in October only to fix her stove, then saying he refused her advances.
Bradbeer faces four felony counts of first-degree sodomy and four felony counts of first-degree burglary. He remained lodged on $500,000 bail Wednesday afternoon, according to jail records.
