Albany police have arrested an Albany man on suspicion of sexually abusing a vulnerable victim.

Police arrested Gary Dale Henderson Jr., 33, on Tuesday, Oct. 4 on suspicion of first-degree sexual abuse and fourth-degree assault.

Linn County Circuit Court documents allege Henderson sexually abused a victim who was “mentally incapacitated and/or physically helpless” on or between Oct. 1 and Oct. 2. According to prosecutor Michael Paul, the victim was allegedly asleep.

Henderson was arraigned in court on one count of first-degree sexual abuse Wednesday afternoon, Oct. 5.

During the arraignment, Judge Heidi Sternhagen set Henderson’s bail at $50,000 and appointed Joseph Elwood as his defense attorney. The next hearing in the matter is scheduled for Oct. 20.
