NEWS RELEASE

UPDATE: SUSPECT ARRESTED IN ROBBERY/RAPE IN NORTH PORTLAND

On Tuesday, February 10, 2004, Portland Police Detectives arrested 33-year-old Howard A. Hill, Jr., in connection to a robbery/rape that occurred January 22, 2004, at approximately 7:30 in the morning. The robbery/rape involved a female in her 20's who was walking on the sidewalk near North Ainsworth Street and North Haight Avenue, when she was confronted by a man armed with a handgun. The man physically assaulted the woman and took her to his vehicle, where he sexually assaulted and robbed her.

Detectives received tips from citizens and police officers after a composite sketch was released as a Crime Stoppers alert on January 29, 2004. However, Detectives said the Oregon State Crime lab analyzed DNA evidence collected during the investigation, and it was a DNA match that led to the identification and subsequent arrest of the suspect.

Anyone with additional information is urged to call Portland Police Detectives Mike Geiger at 823-0887 or Karna Barnard at 823-0869.

The Portland Police Bureau is releasing the latest booking photo of Hill as well as the composite sketch.
