A registered sex offender repeatedly convicted of sexually abusing girls he meets through social media is accused of targeting four more girls in Clackamas County, court records show.

Marcus W. Tong was arraigned Thursday in Clackamas County Circuit Court on suspicion of first- and second-degree online sexual corruption of a child, second-degree sexual abuse, and attempted second- and third-degree sexual abuse.

According to a search warrant affidavit, a Canby police officer pulled over Tong, 33, of Tualatin, and a 16-year-old girl for a traffic violation on Feb. 15. Tong ran from the car after he provided the officer a fake name, claimed he was 19 and said he didn't have his driver's license.

Police were able to later identify Tong when they found his ID while searching his car.

The girl told the officer she met Tong through an app called MeetMe, where he claimed he was 18, the affidavit said. She said they exchanged texts that made her think he wanted to have sex.

A man contacted Canby police a week later and reported his 18-year-old daughter may have been in a past relationship with Tong, the affidavit said. The teen told police she met Tong through MeetMe or MyYearbook when she was 15. She said they had sex nearly three dozen times before he was arrested in June 2013 on unrelated charges, the affidavit said. She said he claimed to be 19 or 20 at the time.

Two other Clackamas County victims have been identified in court documents in connection with the latest charges. All four cases are alleged to have occurred between February 2012 and March 2016.

Tong was first ordered to register as a sex offender following a July 2009 conviction in Linn County for furnishing alcohol to a minor and third-degree rape in Linn County, court records show. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail. The victim in that case was a 14-year-old girl he met through MySpace.

In May 2011, he was sentenced to one year and two months in prison for third-degree rape also in Linn County. That girl also was 14 when the incident occurred, court records show.

Tong was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison in August 2013 in Polk County for a second-degree sex abuse conviction. The 17-year-old girl in that case told police she met Tong through the MeetMe app and that he said he was 20.
