Idaho man charged with beating sex offender

TWIN FALLS, Idaho — One man has been charged with a felony and southern Idaho police are seeking a second man in connection with the beating of a registered sex offender.

The Times-News reports 35-year-old Bradley Houser has been charged with felony aggravated battery. He has not entered a plea.

Twin Falls Police Officer Samir Smriko wrote in a police report that officers were called to a Twin Falls motel last week to investigate a battery. They found 69-year-old Rick Perkins, who had a two-inch gash on his forehead and other injuries.

According to the report, Perkins said two men came to his door and began beating him because of a past child sex abuse case. Perkins was convicted of six counts of lewd conduct with a child in 2008.
