Man Arrested Again for Sexual Assault
MEDFORD – A Sams Valley man previously arrested for a sexual assault was arrested October 3 in connection with a new allegation. A 23-year-old woman came forward after hearing news that detectives arrested Derek Michael Stout, 23, last month. The victim claims Stout attempted to forcibly rape her in Medford in 2013. Stout was arrested and lodged in jail on one count of attempted rape in the first degree. He posted bail and was released.
Detectives arrested Stout on September 4 after an investigation revealed he raped one teen and assaulted another in his home. Deputies were alerted to the incident when one of the girls fled to a nearby home for help. In that case, Stout was charged with the following crimes: rape in the first degree, rape in the third degree, sexual abuse in the first degree, sexual abuse in the third degree, menacing, and assault in the fourth degree.
Based on information gathered in the investigations, detectives believe Stout may have other victims. Anyone with information can call (541) 774-6800 and reference case 16-17751.
