News Release
Polk County requesting help identifying suspects - 03/23/17

On March 23, 2017 at about 2:00pm, a woman reported that an unknown male and female had just entered her residence on James Howe Rd outside of Dallas and threatened to harm her children if she did not open a safe that was in the residence. The unknown female also used force to get the victim's compliance, grabbing her by the hair and shoving her around the residence. The unknown male did not take action, but remained inside the residence during the incident.

The unknown female then forced the victim to the lower level of the residence and bound her hands to a table and fled the residence. It took about 10-15 minutes for the victim to free herself and call 911. The children were unharmed during the incident, but the victim had marks on her wrists, face, and knee.

The suspect female was described as being about 35 years old, 190 lbs, about 5'6", with dark hair. The female was wearing a pink hoodie shirt (not a sweatshirt), black sweats, and brown Ugg style boots and was wearing gloves and sunglasses. The male was described as about 35 years old, 6'0 tall, medium build, clean shaven, and wearing a black hat, jeans, and a dark shirt.

If anyone has any information on the possible identity of the two subjects, please notify Det. John Williams at 503-623-9251 or at williams.john@co.polk.or.us or message us on Facebook.
