December 10, 2007 00:00



On Monday, December 10, 2007, Detectives from the Portland Police Bureau Sexual Assault Detail arrested 61-year-old Lannie L. Haszard on two counts of Sexual Abuse in the First Degree in connection with a reported sexual assault that occurred on Saturday, December 8, 2007. The assault occurred, while the suspect, an AMR paramedic, was transporting an adult female to Emanuel. The investigation began when Northeast Precinct officers were called to meet the victim at Emanuel. The victim provided information leading officers to believe that she had been sexually assaulted by Haszard, who had responded to assist her with a medical problem. Based on the information provided by the victim, officers contacted detectives who initiated an investigation.

Detectives continued the investigation through the weekend and arrested Haszard this morning. Based on information developed during the ongoing investigation, detectives are currently seeking information on other women who may have received emergency medical care from Haszard while he was working in the capacity of an AMR paramedic.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Todd Prosser at (503) 823-9320 or Detective Vincent Cui at (503) 823-0466.

This investigation is continuing.
