Crime Stoppers for week of 10-17-05

October 18, 2005 00:00


The Portland Police, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers, would like your help in finding a wanted person.

32-year-old Shawn Bill McCorkle is wanted on a half million-dollar warrant out of Multnomah County for Kidnap in the first degree and Assault in the second degree. McCorkle also has a no bail warrant out of Washington County Sheriff’s Office for Probation Violation.

McCorkle, and two other suspects, were working security at the Greek Cusina, 404 SW Washington Street in the early morning hours of May 3, 2005, when the victim was asked to leave the Cusina after a minor altercation with another customer. The victim left the premises and walked across the street to call a cab. McCorkle and his accomplices followed the victim, grabbed him around the neck, dragged him across the street, down the sidewalk, and back into the Greek Cusina where he was beaten with a fire extinguisher.

The accomplices in this case have already been arrested. Police are now asking for help in locating and apprehending McCorkle.

McCorkle is described as a white male, 5’10, 215 pounds, with short dark brown hair and blue eyes. He has multiple tattoos on arms and chest.

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, and you may remain anonymous. Call Crime Stoppers at (503) 823-HELP (4357).
