News Release
Reported rape/assault - 12/06/19

Case # 19-009647                                       REPORTED RAPE/ASSAULT

Date: 12/6/2019

On 12/3/2019 at about 10:00 am, the Milwaukie Police were made aware of a post on social media which alleged a sexual assault had occurred in Milwaukie the night before, around 10:00 pm.  Based on the second-hand details provided on social media, officers and detectives canvassed a small area in the Ardenwald neighborhood and were able to identify and locate the person the post referred to.  Although the information on social media indicated the victim had gone to the hospital, police learned that had not happened.  The matter had not been reported to police until we located the victim.  She reluctantly provided a statement to investigators and then went for a medical evaluation.

Detectives are actively investigating the allegations and take complaints of this nature very seriously.  Nothing is more important to us than the actual safety, and the perception of safety within our community.  We have increased general patrols in the area, as a   precautionary measure.  The investigation is on-going and confidential.  Based on all available information, we do not believe residents should be concerned for their safety. 

We will continue to investigate the matter diligently and respectfully and we appreciate the trust and support of the community.  If anyone believes they have information directly related to this investigation they can contact Detective Crystal Hill or Detective Kathryn Meier (503 786-7574).
