Woman Wanted for Hitting Hillsboro Police Officer with a Stolen Car

February 10, 2021

On Saturday, February 6, 2021, just after 11:30 a.m., Hillsboro Police officers were dispatched to check on a woman in a car parked near the Old Navy store at 11175 NE Evergreen Parkway in Hillsboro.

While on scene, the officers confirmed the vehicle had been stolen in Portland this January. When officers tried to take the woman out of the car to arrest her, she backed up with her driver’s door open. A Hillsboro police officer who was standing in that area was hit by the open door, smashed against a parked car, and thrown into the air. That officer was taken to an area hospital, treated, and released. He is expected to make a full recovery.

After the driver hit the officer, she fled the scene in the stolen car which was found abandoned in Beaverton later that day.

Because one of their officers was assaulted by the driver, the Hillsboro Police Department requested the Washington County Sheriff’s Office take over the investigation to avoid any potential conflict of interest.

The Sheriff’s Office identified 37-year-old Linsey Gail Perry as the suspect. Ms. Perry’s current location is unknown and detectives are asking for the public’s help to find her. If you see Ms. Perry, please call 911. If you have information about this case or her location, please call the Sheriff’s Office at 503-846-2700.
