Two Tigard-area men are accused of sexually abusing two young girls they were babysitting in the home the men share in Metzger.

46-year-old Bryan Payne and 72-year-old Lynn Payne entered "not guilty" pleas to sex abuse charges in Washington County Court Monday afternoon. The two are being held on $500,000 bail after two girls under age 10 told their parents they had been abused and the parents notified police.


Investigators are concerned there may be other young victims who have not come forward.  

"Detectives believe that this had been going on for a period of time," said Washington County Sgt. Bob Ray. "The Paynes would actually have children over at their house that they would babysit, so obviously they had access to different children."

The Paynes house is on S.W. Washington Drive. Click here to view a map.

Anyone with additional information about the case is urged to call the Washington County Sheriff's Office, 503-846-2500.
