Sex offender who was victim of vigilante attack changes Village of Hillsborough address

Mark Tabor

A sex offender who once was the victim of a vigilante attack has changed his Village of Hillsborough address.

Mark Alexander Tabor, 31, registered last year an address at 1577 Lemon Loop in the Village of Hillsborough upon his release from prison.

Tabor admitted to molesting two young sisters while he was a guest in their home in Oregon in August 2011. He was sentenced in 2013 to six years in prison. He will remain under supervision until 2028.

After the discovery of Tabor’s assault on the two young girls, two men who were friends of the victims’ family apprehended Tabor, armed themselves with a baton and a wrench and drove him to a campground where they beat him, according to a story in the Medford (Ore.) Mail Tribune. Tabor managed to escape and catch a ride to a gas station. From there he was taken to a hospital. He was arrested at the hospital after an investigation into the vigilante attack revealed Tabor’s sexual attack on the girls.

Tabor sexually molested the girls “in a violent manner,” the Medford newspaper reported. Tabor’s attacks included forcible kissing, biting, fondling and digital penetration.

The girls, at ages 13 and 14, gave statements in court at the time of Tabor’s sentencing. The judge praised the girls’ courage in testifying and promised to put Tabor away “for a long time,” the newspaper reported.

The vigilantes, who had clean records, were sentenced to probation.

Earlier this month, Tabor changed his address and has apparently moved back to Oregon.
