On Wednesday, February 27, 2002, at approximately 8:00 p.m., a 28-year-old female was driving in the area of NE 122nd Avenue and Inverness when her car stalled. As she was attempting to re-start the vehicle, a male opened the unlocked passenger door and, armed with a knife, ordered the victim to drive to a secluded area near NE 125th Avenue and Marine Drive. The suspect then robbed and sexually assaulted the victim.

The suspect is described as an unkempt white male, late 30’s to early 40’s, 5’9” to 5’11,” thin build, waist length brown stringy hair, with a cut or infected sore on the left side of his upper lip. The knife is described as a 9-inch survival type knife with a silver blade. Detectives believe that the suspect may be a transient that has recently frequented the area of the MAX station at 122nd Avenue and Burnside.

A composite drawing of the suspect is available via e-mail from the Portland Police Bureau Identification Division at (503) 823-0382. Anyone with information in this investigation is asked to call either Detective Wayne Svilar at (503) 823-0873 or Crime Stoppers at (503) 823-HELP. Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in this case or any unsolved felony crime, and callers can remain totally anonymous.

This suspect is considered armed and dangerous.
