PPB Highlights International Fraud Awareness Week (Photo) - 11/12/18

The week of November 11th-17th is recognized as International Fraud Awareness Week. Throughout the week, the Portland Police Bureau's White Collar Crime Unit will be highlighting various scams on the Bureau's social media for the public to be aware of and avoid.

As the holidays approach, Detectives say scams increase, especially in regard to charities. Scammers often use organization names that sound much like reputable and real charities. Ask for the exact name of the entity and do some research before you donate. Do not let the caller rush you into making a decision.

You may be asked to buy gift cards or send a wire transfer. Legitimate charities do not ask for gift cards or wire transfers.

Scammers usually give vague descriptions about how your money will be used. If you ask and cannot get a specific answer, it could be fraud.

On Saturday, November 10, 2018, at 7:15 p.m., Central Precinct officers responded to the 4100 block of Southeast Ivon Street on the report that a man was throwing rocks at vehicles.

An officer arrived in the area of the reported vandalism and began to search the area for the suspect. As the officer searched the area, he located a person matching the suspect's description in the area of Southeast 45th Avenue and Southeast Division Street. The officer contacted the suspect and based on preliminary information, investigators believe the suspect struck the officer in the head with a pipe. After being struck in the head by the suspect, the officer detained the suspect until additional cover officers arrived and assisted in taking the suspect into custody.

When officers interviewed the original 9-1-1 caller they learned the suspect had thrown a pipe at the victim's vehicle. After the suspect struck the victim's vehicle with a pipe she called 9-1-1
and police arrived shortly thereafter.

As officers continued the investigation at the crime scene, they located and seized a pipe believed to have been used by the suspect to assault the officer.

During the investigation, officers learned a man matching the suspect's description in this investigation had reportedly assaulted a community member in the 2500 block of Southeast 41st Avenue. The caller to 9-1-1 reported she was on her front porch at a residence when the suspect struck her with a pipe and damaged some property at the location. The victim in this incident did not require medical treatment for injuries suffered as a result of the assault.

The injured officer was transported in a police vehicle to a Portland hospital for treatment of the injuries suffered during the assault. Once at the hospital, medical personnel determined the officer's injuries required admission to the hospital for treatment of serious injuries.

The suspect has been identified as 36-year-old Tsegay A. Abraha. Abraha was lodged at the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Assault in the First Degree and Assault in the Second Degree.

Detectives with the Portland Police Bureau Detective Division's Assault Detail continue this investigation. Anyone with information about Abraha or this incident should contact Detective Shaye Samora at 503-823-0479 or Shaye.Samora@portlandoregon.gov

Detectives Arrest Suspect Connected to August 2018 Racially Motivated Attack in Downtown Portland (Photo) - 11/02/18

On Thursday November 1, 2018, detectives assigned to the Portland Police Bureau's Bias Crimes Detail arrested 37-year-old Nathan Scates in connection with an assault and bias crime in Southwest Portland.

Scates was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Assault in the Second Degree, Intimidation in the Second Degree, and Unlawful Use of an Electrical Stun Gun, Tear Gas or Mace in the Second Degree.

The Multnomah County District Attorney's Office is currently reviewing this case. A charging decision is expected later this morning. Scates is scheduled to make his first court appearance in the Justice Center at 2:00 p.m., Courtroom 3.

This investigation began on August 10, 2018, when Central Precinct officers responded to a public dock on the Willamette River near 1510 Southwest Harbor Way. Officers learned that a uniformed security guard (later identified as Scates) confronted several people on the dock. During the course of this event, Scates uttered racial and other slurs and assaulted a female with an Asp baton, injuring the victim's hand.

People at the scene called 9-1-1 and Scates walked away while being followed by the victims and others. Scates deployed pepper spray at two uninvolved people in his attempt to get away from the scene.

The initial victims in this case were a Muslim family, the female assaulted (and her male companion) were of Hispanic descent.

After a lengthy investigation, Scates was identified as the suspect and arrested on several charges.

The Bureau investigates all reports of bias-motivated crimes and encourages any member of our community who is the victim of such a crime to contact law enforcement. Under Oregon law, bias crimes are defined as any criminal act that targets a victim based on the suspect's perception of the victim's race, color, religion, sexual orientation, disability, or national origin. Detectives work to determine whether or not bias elements are present during the reported crime that align with Oregon law as defined in the Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS):

ORS 166.165 - Intimidation in the First Degree - https://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/166.165

ORS 166.155 - Intimidation in the Second Degree - https://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/166.155

If you have been the victim of a bias crime assault or you are witnessing one, immediately call 9-1-1. If you have been the victim of a different bias crime and the suspect is no longer present, such as vandalism or graffiti, please call the non-emergency line at 503-823-3333.

To learn more about bias crime investigations and reported bias/hate crime statistics within the City of Portland, please visit https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/77066

Additionally, the City of Portland is a partner in Portland United Against Hate, which is a community initiated partnership of Community Based Organizations, Neighborhood Associations, concerned communities and the City. To learn more, please visit https://www.portlandoregon.gov/oni/72583

One Person Injured in Early Morning Stabbing in Old Town - 11/02/18

On Friday November 2, 2018, at approximately 3:23 a.m., Central Precinct officers responded to the report of a stabbing in the area of 2nd and West Burnside Street.

Officers arrived in the area and located the 25-year-old male victim on Northwest 2nd Avenue, just north of Burnside Street. The victim was suffering from a stab wound to his left arm so officers applied a tourniquet and awaited medical personnel to respond to the scene. The victim was transported to a Portland hospital by ambulance where he was treated and released.

Officers learned that the victim and a friend were walking along Northwest 1st Avenue near Couch Street when an unknown male "acting psychotic" approached the victim and, without provocation, stabbed him in the arm. The victim and friend yelled at the suspect who then ran away and was not located.

The suspect was described as a white male in his mid-20s, approximately six feet tall, wearing dark clothing, and a bald head.

Anyone with information about this incident or suspect is asked to contact Assault Detectives at 503-823-0400.

Drunk Driver Arrested After Crashing Into Police Motorcycle Officer - No Serious Injuries (Photo) - 11/02/18

On Friday November 2, 2018, at approximately 1:15 a.m., a Traffic Division Motorcycle Officer was performing a traffic stop on a speeding driver on eastbound I-84 near the Northeast Halsey Street overpass. As the speeding driver slowed down and pulled to the right (with the motor officer behind), a second speeding driver in a 2011 Volkswagen Golf struck the motor officer from behind, knocking the officer to the ground and crashing the motorcycle.

The officer suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to the hospital for a precautionary examination by medical personnel.

The driver involved in the crash remained at the scene and did not require any medical treatment. Investigating officers determined that the driver was impaired by alcohol at the time of the crash.

The driver involved in the crash, 29-year-old Bradley Miguel Pitts, was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants (DUII), Reckless Driving, Recklessly Endangering Another Person, and Assault in the Fourth Degree. He will be arraigned later today.

Drivers impaired by alcohol or drugs injure and kill thousands of people every year. People consuming alcohol or drugs are urged not to get behind the wheel and should have a sober driver or utilize taxis, ride-share companies or transit so everyone is safe on our streets.

The Portland Police Bureau is committed to working with our partners in government and the community to create safer streets and work towards reducing, and eventually eliminating, traffic fatalities as part of Vision Zero.

Driver Arrested During Wednesday Demonstration -- No Known Injuries (Photo) - 10/31/18

On Wednesday, October 31, 2018, Central Precinct officers responded to the area in front of the Multnomah County Courthouse, located at 1021 Southwest 4th Avenue, on the report the roadway was blocked by demonstrators.

Officers learned the demonstrators were family and friends of Patrick Kimmons. The officers contacted the demonstrators and requested they move off the roadway and onto the sidewalk; however, the group remained on the roadway, blocking vehicle traffic. As officers developed a plan to divert traffic, officers continued to request the protestors move to the sidewalk. While officers continued to communicate with the crowd and direct them to the sidewalk, the driver of a dark blue Chevrolet 2500 pick-up traveled north on Southwest 4th Avenue into the crowd of people and struck a protester. The protester did not require medical treatment.

Officers located and stopped the Chevrolet truck and driver near the intersection of Southwest 3rd Avenue and Southwest Madison Street. The driver was taken into custody without incident.

The driver has been identified as 55-year-old Mark A. Dickerson. Dickerson was lodged at the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Assault in the Fourth Degree, Reckless Endangering, and Reckless Driving.

The Police Bureau recognizes that crowd control events that impact traffic are complex incidents that are extremely dangerous. During today's event, officers recognized that demonstrators were distraught about the loss of a loved one and the officers attempted to provide direction to the protesters without enflaming the situation.

The initial mission today was to ensure the safety of those people demonstrating and other community members traveling on the roadways. Police established detours as additional resources were called to the scene to assist with directing the protesters off the street and onto the sidewalk.

Officers responded from each of the Bureau's three precincts to assist in today's work to safely move people off the street without the use of force.

PPB Releases Investigative Material and Additional Videos of Officer-Involved Shooting - 10/31/18

On Wednesday, October 31, 2018, the Portland Police Bureau posted the Detective Division's investigative materials regarding the Sunday, September 30, 2018, fatal shooting of Patrick Kimmons.

The investigative material was posted on the Bureau's Open Data page and can be found here: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/article/701715

A photograph of a gun believed to be possessed and fired by Kimmons is also being released. The Police Bureau is also releasing videos that were collected during this investigation. The Police Bureau combined the two camera angles to be shown simultaneously, which can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=99RQZjnXYi4&feature=youtu.be

The second video is the same camera angles, only they are shown separately: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GBOiFrPcEBw&feature=youtu.be

This information was not released until after the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office informed the Police Bureau that the family of Patrick Kimmons was provided an opportunity to view the video and learn more about the information provided during the Grand Jury.

Police Bureau members, including Deputy Chief Bob Day, met with community members on October 1, 2018, providing information that was available about the shooting at that time in the investigation. Members of the Portland Police Bureau Youth Services Division's Crisis Response Team, met with Kimmons' family, providing them information and identifying and linking the family to available services.

"The Police Bureau is dedicated to providing information through responsible transparency," said Chief Danielle Outlaw. "To ensure the integrity of this investigation, including the administrative review, criminal investigation and Grand Jury process, the Bureau waited to release the information until the conclusion of the Grand Jury. Though we recognize the community's desire to review the information in a timely manner, we also waited to release this information until the family of Mr. Kimmons was briefed and shown the investigation and video. We recognize this is a difficult time for many and wanted to ensure the information was presented to the family first."

The Portland Police Bureau is conducting an internal administrative investigation of the entire incident. Once the internal administrative investigation is complete, the case will be presented to the Police Review Board (PRB), which is comprised of community members, Bureau members and representatives from the Independent Police Review Division. The Bureau expects this internal administrative investigation to be completed within the next 10 weeks.

PPB Realigns Resources and Adds Technology to Investigate Shootings (Photo) - 10/30/18

The Portland Police Bureau has changed the way it is investigating shootings in the City of Portland by realigning resources and restructuring its approach; using technology to better identify shooters; and applying a holistic approach involving internal and external collaboration.

The restructured Gun Violence Response Team (GVRT), a unit within the Tactical Operations Division, is now contacted about every shooting. Prior to this change, GVRT only responded to shootings with a gang nexus. With this new model, a GVRT sergeant is available 24/7 and will be contacted by officers who respond to a scene where there is evidence of gunfire. The GVRT sergeant will determine if members of GVRT, the Robbery Detail, Domestic Violence Reduction Unit, Homicide Detail or another investigative unit will respond to assume the investigation.

With this restructure, Chief Danielle Outlaw assigned an additional six detectives and six officers to join the Tactical Operations Division.

A second part of the approach involves the use of technology and collaboration. The Bureau, which is now part of the Portland Area Crime Gun Initiative (PACGI), based on the National Crime Gun Intelligence Center model, works with other law enforcement partners to prevent violent crime by identifying perpetrators, linking criminal activities, and identifying sources of crime guns for immediate disruption, investigation, and prosecution. These efforts and others are all components of Crime Gun Intelligence Centers (CGICs), an interagency collaboration focused on the immediate collection, management, and analysis of crime gun evidence, such as shell casings, in real time, in an effort to identify shooters, disrupt criminal activity, and to prevent future violence.

As part of this collaboration, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) provided the Portland Police Bureau's Tactical Operation Division with a National Integrated Ballistic Information Network (NIBIN) machine for one year. Through NIBIN, the Bureau can access forensic information on recovered casings. This information is just one investigative factor, but in the past it would have taken weeks, if not months, to receive the information. Now, investigators are able to access the information immediately, and perhaps identify a suspect and stop them from committing additional shootings. After a directive and roll call training video are completed within a few weeks, the Bureau will move toward a 100 percent submission rate for casings.

The Portland Area Crime Gun Initiative also includes: the Gresham Police Department; Multnomah County Sheriff's Office; Multnomah County District Attorney's office: US Attorney's Office; Oregon State Police, Oregon State Crime Lab; ATF; and FBI. The Portland Police Bureau and PACGI will continue to work with: the Office of Youth Violence Prevention; Habilitation Empowerment Accountability Therapy (HEAT) and the Gang Impacted Families Team (GIFT). To learn more about CGICs, visit: https://crimegunintelcenters.org/

The Police Bureau's Tactical Operation Division facilitates frequent investigative reviews within the Police Bureau and among PACGI members. The Bureau also continues to partner and share information with the Office of Youth Violence Prevention in a coordinated effort to reach community members directly impacted by gun violence. This holistic approach, which includes services and assistance to those involved in or at risk for future violence made available through OYVP is intended to prevent further gun violence and trauma in our community.

"The Portland Police Bureau is strategically focused and committed to the use of data, intelligence, collaboration and technology to make the best use of our limited resources and to inform our enforcement efforts," said Chief Danielle Outlaw. "This contemporary policing model will allow us to solve crimes faster and prevent gun violence from occurring in our community."

By this time last year there were 240 shootings in the City of Portland. So far in 2018, there have been 271 shooting investigations in Portland. For more information about shootings, visit the Police Bureau's open data at: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/71978.
