News Release
Suspect Arrested after Robbery and Kidnapping in early morning hours of 9/3/2022 - 09/06/22

The suspect in this case was identified as Jeremy Alexksa, age 31. 

The charges of Kidnapping 1 and Robbery 1 were added by Vancouver Police Department due to those crimes taking place in their jurisdiction. 

On 9/3/22 at 04:32 hours, Clark County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to 24000 Block of NE 28th Street in Camas, Washington for a report of an in-progress trespass. The caller stated that a female was banging on the door saying that she had just jumped from a moving vehicle after being kidnapped in Vancouver. Deputies arrived on scene and contacted a female in the front yard who appeared in distress. 

The female reported that while she was near Mill Plain Blvd/ Grand Blvd, a male approached her vehicle and asked her for some water. She helped the male out by providing him some water and then allowed the male to get into her vehicle. Once in the vehicle, the male produced a knife and used the threat of violence to take control of the car and then drove with the female victim to the area of NE 28th Street/ NE 233rd Avenue.

The female reported that when the vehicle slowed down along a dirt road, she jumped out of the vehicle and began knocking on doors at area residences.

Additional deputies began to search the area for the involved vehicle. They located the vehicle, which was registered to the female victim. After stopping briefly for deputies, the vehicle eluded. Deputies were able to observe the driver and he matched the description of the suspect male given by the female victim. 

Deputies initiated a pursuit of vehicle. The pursuit began at approximately 05:14 am in the area of NE 28th Street/ NE 222nd Avenue and concluded at approximately 05:25 am near NE 2nd Street/ NE 115th Avenue when deputies, with the assistance of officers from the Vancouver Police Department, were able to pin the vehicle when it came to a stop. 

The driver was eventually taken into custody after several attempts to free the vehicle failed.

The suspect refused to identify himself and he was booked into the Clark County Jail as John Doe on Robbery-1st degree, Kidnapping-1st degree, Attempt to Elude, and Reckless Driving charges. 

At the time of this release the suspect has still refused to identify himself and the jail is awaiting results of identification efforts. Due to the nature of the case, the female victim will not be identified at this time.
