Police seek public's help in finding sexual assault suspect

March 21, 2003 00:00


Portland Police Bureau Detectives are investigating a sexual assault on a woman who was attacked by two men earlier this week. According to investigators, the female victim left a business at the Riverplace marina at about 9:30 p.m., Sunday, March 16, 2003. After walking a short distance to her car, she was approached by two males, one of whom was armed with an unknown type of handgun. The men ordered the victim to get into her car and the suspects also got in. The victim was forced to drive for a half-hour before she was instructed to park on Macadam south of the Sellwood Bridge. She was then ordered out of the car and sexually assaulted.

The victim's description of the suspects is as follows:

Suspect #1: White male in his 20s, with short brown hair. Slight build and 5'8" to 5'9" tall. Suspect had stubble growth of beard and was described as having an oval face. He was wearing a brown work coat, faded jeans, a red shirt and white Nike running shoes.

Suspect #2: A dark-skinned male in his 20s, with short dark curly hair who is clean shaven and has a muscular build. He was wearing faded jeans, a black T-shirt and black shoes. He is also said to have a tatoo on his right shoulder/bicep. The tatoo extended just below the T-shirt sleeve line.

Because stranger to stranger sexual assaults are relatively rare, Portland Police want to warn area women to be extra vigilant in their personal security, especially in areas that are not well-traveled or not well-lit.

Anyone with information about this case should call Detective Mike Geiger at 823-0887. The investigation is continuing.
