Crime Stoppers for week of 11/14/05

November 15, 2005 00:00


The Portland Police, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers, would like your help in identifying and apprehending a rape suspect.

On October 20, 2005 at about 5pm, the suspect knocked on the victim’s door, forcing his way inside, where he physically and sexually assaulted the woman. Prior to the assault, the suspect may have walked through the Sellwood neighborhood representing himself as a door-to-door magazine salesman, contacting other residents.

Detectives have released an artist’s sketch of the suspect. He is described as a male with a dark complexion, 21-25 years old, with a thin face and build. He was clean-shaven, wearing a dark suit with a pink striped tie.

Anyone with information about this incident or who can identify the suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers.

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).
