Sex offender, 70, accused of attacking 15-year-old girl in his Channelview trailer


The victim's mother told police on September 26 her daughter was visiting Don Ray Porterfield in the 700 block of Woodland Drive when her daughter called her screaming. The teen told police Porterfield forced her into his bedroom and tried to tie her down. She was able to get away and then called her mom from Porterfield's cell phone. He was arrested the same day.

Investigators say further investigation revealed Porterfield is actually a sex offender who moved six months ago and did not register his new address.

Porterfield is charged with aggravated kidnapping and failure to register as a sex offender.

Court documents state Porterfield has prior convictions for aggravated sexual assault in 1990 and aggravated rape in 1976.
