Crime Stoppers Featured Case #17-14 – Assault



The Vancouver (WA) Police Department, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers of Oregon, is asking for the public’s help to solve a serious assault.

On March 26, 2017, at approximately 8:30 p.m., Vancouver Police officers responded to an assault call in which the victim was beaten by a group of males as he was walking in the 2500 block of Northeast 110th Avenue.

Officers learned that the victim walked by a dark colored vehicle, which had a white male standing outside of it and was occupied by more three white males. The males start talking to the victim and the occupants get out and begin approaching the victim who becomes scared and takes off running.

As the victim is running, he was struck in the head with something and feels multiple fists hitting him about the head and body. The victim was rendered unconscious for several minutes and when he regained consciousness he noticed his backpack containing multiple personal items was gone. The victim walked a few blocks from where he was assaulted and a passerby saw that he was injured and allowed the victim to use their cell phone to call 9-1-1. The victim suffered a concussion from the attack that required hospitalization.

The suspects are described as white males in their 20s, associated with a dark colored vehicle.

Detectives from the Vancouver Police Major Crime Unit are investigating and are asking anyone who may have information related to this assault to contact Crime Stoppers of Oregon.
