Officers Arrest Donut Thief (Photo) - 09/30/14
Central Precinct officers pursue stolen donut delivery truck -- Driver arrested, pastry in hand.

On Tuesday September 30, 2014, at approximately 2:00 a.m., a Central Precinct officer responded to the 1100 block of Southwest 5th Avenue on the report of a stolen delivery vehicle.

The officer contacted the victim and learned that he'd parked the van on 5th Avenue and left it unlocked with the keys inside as he made a delivery of pastries. The officer learned that the 2004 Chevy Astro Van was owned by Donut Land, located on Southwest Boones Ferry Road in Tualatin.

As the officer was taking the initial report, another Central Precinct officer spotted the stolen van traveling eastbound on Powell Boulevard near Southeast 21st Avenue. The officer got behind the van and activated his overhead lights, but the driver of the stolen donut van did not stop and the officer engaged in a traffic pursuit.

The suspect pulled the van over at Southeast 59th Avenue and Mall Street, and the officer began to give him commands to put both of his hands out the window. The suspect put his hands out the window and the officer observed a pastry fall from the suspect's hands.

Additional officers arrived and the suspect was taken into custody without incident.

The suspect, 34-year-old Peter Leon Johansen, was transported to the Multnomah County Jail and booked on charges of Unlawful Use of a Motor Vehicle, Theft in the First Degree and Attempt to Elude by Vehicle.

The victim was transported to the scene to take possession of the Donut Land van. Officers noted that there were donuts all over the inside of the van, but otherwise there was no damage to the vehicle.

UPDATE: Child Critically Injured in Fall in Southeast Portland's Powellhurst-Gilbert Neighborhood - 09/22/14
The 3-year-old boy who fell from a 2nd story window on Sunday afternoon did not survive his injuries despite the life-saving efforts of medical staff at a Portland hospital on Sunday evening.

The Child Abuse Team will review the case but, at this point, there is no indication that this incident is anything but a tragic accident.

###ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW###

On Sunday September 21, 2014, at 3:56 p.m., East Precinct officers responded to Southeast 113th Avenue and Division Street on the report that a small child fell from an upper window and was being transported by private car to a hospital for treatment to a head injury.

Officers and medical personnel arrived on 113th Avenue and met the family with the child. The 3-year-old boy was transported to a Portland hospital by ambulance for treatment to life-threatening injuries. The child remains in critical condition.

Officers learned that the fall actually occurred at a residence in the 2600 block of Southeast 125th Avenue, and that the 3-year-old boy fell from a 2nd story window and landed on the concrete below the window.

This tragic incident appears to have been an accidental fall after the child was playing with other children in an upstairs bedroom. Detectives assigned to the Child Abuse Team were notified as is standard protocol with these types of incidents.

This case is a sad reminder of the dangers of upper floor windows.

Randall Children's Hospital and Portland Fire & Rescue would like to remind parents of the following safety tips to help prevent these tragic accidents:

* Keep play away from windows.
* Only allow windows to open 4 inches, and install window stops and/or window guards that can be removed by an adult in an emergency.
* Lock windows when not in use.
* Open windows from the top and use a window stop for the bottom.
* Prevent climbing. Keep furniture and anything a child can climb on away from windows.
* Actively watch children near windows.

On Friday September 19, 2014, at 4:53 a.m., East Precinct officers responded to the area of Northeast 137th Avenue and Sacramento Street on the report of a man running up and down the street screaming about someone following him.

As officers were en route, the 9-1-1 caller reported that nobody was following the man and it appeared that the man was either high on something or having mental health issues.

Officers arrived in the area and got out to talk to the man to assess his condition but when he saw police he ran away. Additional officers arrived and began to contain the area but the man ran towards an unoccupied running police car and got into the driver's seat. The man stole the police car and drove off, nearly hitting three officers as he sped away.

The man crashed into a yard at Northeast 142nd Avenue and Sacramento Street and was taken into custody. He was identified as a 33-year-old male and he was transported to a Portland hospital for treatment to non-life-threatening injuries and a mental health assessment. The police car, a 2009 Ford Crown Victoria, sustained serious damage. No officers were injured in this incident.

The suspect faces several charges upon his release from the hospital. His name will not be released until he's officially charged.

Thief Arrested After Stealing Metal from New Portland Police Training Complex (Photo) - 09/18/14
On Monday September 15, 2014, at approximately 6:30 p.m., a suspect stole several thousand dollars worth of metal panels to be used as the entry facade to the new Portland Police Training Complex, located at 14902 Northeast Airport Way.

A North Precinct detective was able to obtain surveillance video of the suspect vehicle, which was a fairly distinct looking Chevy S-10 pick-up truck.

On Wednesday September 17, 2014, the detective spotted the vehicle as it drove by him on his way home. Uniform officers were called to stop the vehicle and the suspect was arrested without incident.

The detective continued to investigate and late last night recovered all of the stolen metal but it is unlikely it can be used at the Training Complex as some of it has been damaged.

The suspect, 43-year-old Sean Michael Kearney, was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on two counts of Theft in the First Degree.

Anyone with additional information about this theft is asked to contact Detective Travis Fields at (503) 823-5700.

Crime Prevention Tips to Protect Property in Garages and Garden Sheds (Photo) - 09/18/14
The Portland Police Bureau and the Office of Neighborhood Involvement's Crime Prevention Coordinators would like to offer community members some helpful tips to reduce the occurrence of garage and shed burglaries.

- Lock garages and sheds when you are not able to monitor these areas. Tools, bicycles, and other items are often stolen out of an open garage while a resident gardens in the backyard or takes a break inside of the house.

- If your neighbors' garage door remains open for an extended period of time or is left open at night, let them know. They probably aren't aware and you can help keep your neighborhood safe from opportunistic thieves.

- Secure tools and climbing devices such as ladders since these can be used to access vulnerable areas of your home.

- Install locks on gates to your backyard to prevent easy access to the area.

- Report suspicious activity happening in your neighborhood to the police by calling 9-1-1.

- Report all incidents of theft by calling the Police Non-Emergency Line at (503) 823-3333 or by reporting online by visiting http://www.portlandpolice.com

Community members are encouraged to visit the City of Portland's Office of Neighborhood Involvement Crime Prevention page at http://www.portlandonline.com/oni/cp for additional crime prevention tips and resources.

Public Alert: Scammers Calling Portland Residents Claiming to be IRS - 09/16/14
The Portland Police Bureau has received two recent reports where victims stated that someone claiming to be with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) called them and demanded money for back taxes.

In one incident in late August, the victim received a voice mail from someone claiming to be from the "Tax Fraud Department" of the IRS. The caller claimed that the victim owed money to the IRS and if they did not pay, the County Sheriff would make an arrest. The victim did not call the number back and did not lose any money.

In another incident in early September, the victim reported a similar call from a "Federal Crimes Investigator" from the IRS, claiming that the victim owed money from back taxes and that if she did not pay, police would respond and take the victim to jail.

Although the victim was suspicious, the caller convinced her that it was a legitimate call and told the victim to go purchase MoneyPak reloadable cards, then call back and provide the numbers over the phone.

Unfortunately the victim did what the scammer requested and lost nearly $12,000.

Similar scams have been reported in the past year where callers claim to be with a utility or other government agency demanding money.

If you question the authenticity of a call asking for payment, hang up and contact the utility or government agency directly.

Tips to help avoid becoming a victim to this scam include:

*Never give personal or financial information to an unsolicited caller or email.
*Be suspicious of callers who demand immediate payment for any reason.
*Utility companies and government agencies will never contact you for payment by GreenDot, MoneyPak or Vanilla Reload.
*Remember that anyone who has the number on a prepaid card has access to the funds on your card.
*Never wire money, provide debit or credit card numbers to a stranger.

MoneyPak/Green Dot and Vanilla Reload have online tools to allow purchasers to request a refund if the scammer has not yet cashed the card.

For more information, please visit https://www.moneypak.com/refundrequest.aspx for MoneyPak/Green Dot and https://www.vanillareload.com/index.php/refund for Vanilla Reload.

"People should stay vigilant and avoid becoming a victim if they receive contact from someone claiming to be from the IRS who demands money," said Preston C. Lamb, Special Agent in Charge for the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA).

"Federal, State and local law enforcement and consumer protection officials are doing an outstanding job educating taxpayers about the scam and encouraging victims to contact TIGTA," Lamb said. "The most effective way for individuals to report scam attempts and losses is by filling out the "IRS Impersonation scam" form on TIGTA's website, www.treasury.gov/tigta."

If you are a resident of Portland and fall victim to these scammers with financial loss, you are encouraged to file a report by calling the Portland Police Bureau's Non-Emergency line at (503) 823-3333.

Resources are available for consumers to avoid becoming victims of scams and fraud at the Oregon Department of Justice. Information can be found online at: http://www.doj.state.or.us/consumer/pages/index.aspx

The Portland Police Bureau is releasing information related to the tasing and arrest of a 16-year-old male that occurred early Sunday morning in North Portland's St. John's Neighborhood.

On Sunday September 14, 2014, just after midnight, North Precinct officers were dispatched to the area of North Philadelphia Avenue and Ivanhoe Street after several calls to 9-1-1 regarding a disturbance, property damage and threats to shoot someone in the area. Officers received information that the group of people was approximately nine African-American males and females.

9-1-1 calls are available at: http://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/docs/14-75824/911Calls.mp3

Listeners should be aware that there is graphic language contained in some of the 9-1-1 calls.

Arriving officers contacted a group of men and women matching the description of suspects, one of whom was a 16-year-old male. Officers attempting to place him into handcuffs became involved in a struggle with him, which resulted in a sergeant deploying a Taser to overcome the subject's active aggression, including his choking the female officer involved in the struggle.

One cycle of the Taser was effective and officers were able to place the subject into handcuffs. Two officers and a sergeant received minor injuries during this struggle.

After being placed into handcuffs, the 16-year-old male was treated at the scene by Portland Fire & Rescue then transported to a Portland hospital for an examination of a medical condition, before being transported to the Donald E. Long Juvenile Detention Home on charges of: Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree; Interfering with a Peace Officer; Resist Arrest; Assaulting a Public Safety Officer; Attempted Assault on a Public Safety Officer (two counts); Harassment (three counts); Assault in the Fourth Degree; and Attempted Strangulation.

There were several people in the area during this incident who were very hostile toward officers, including the 16-year-old's brother, 20-year-old Giovanni Dmitri Gurule.

Gurule was arrested and booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree, Interfering with a Peace Officer and Resist Arrest.

The Bureau is releasing all reports related to this incident and are available here:
http://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/docs/14-75824/14-75824_Reports_Redacted.pdf

Portland Police Detectives Arrest Suspect in New York City - Related to Portland Investigation Involving Sex Abuse to a Minor (Photo) - 09/10/14
On Tuesday September 9, 2014, detectives from the Portland Police Bureau's Sex Crimes Unit, in cooperation with the New York City Police Department's Brooklyn Special Victims Squad, arrested 34-year-old Benjamin "Benn" C. Mendoza, at his place of business in New York City. Mendoza was booked into Brooklyn Central Booking and will await extradition to Oregon.

Mendoza had been named as a suspect in a Sex Abuse to a Minor case, reported to the Portland Police Bureau in late July, 2014, after Mendoza had been hired as a visiting coach at a specialized, Portland-based aerial arts school.

During the two weeks in mid-July, while Mendoza was coaching in Portland, he had access to a number of students who were minors, and it was one of those minors who alleged having been sexually assaulted by Mendoza. No weapons or threats of harm were reported. Mendoza is a resident of New York City.

An extensive investigation revealed that Mendoza has coached, taught and/or had access to minors, at numerous locations throughout the U.S.

On August 20, 2014, a Multnomah County, Oregon, Grand Jury issued a secret indictment against Mendoza on numerous charges relating to violations of Oregon Law, including: Luring a Minor (Felony; 2 counts), Sex Abuse in the Second Degree (Felony; 3 counts), Possession of Materials Depicting Sexually Explicit Conduct of a Child in the Second Degree (Felony), and Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor (Misdemeanor). Additional charges may be pending.

Detectives are attempting to determine if there may be additional victims throughout the country.

Anyone who may have information about this case, or any similar incidents involving Mendoza, is asked to contact Detective Mike Weinstein, Portland (Oregon) Police Bureau, Sex Crimes Unit, at 503-823-0764 or Mike.Weinstein@PortlandOregon.gov.

Fontaine Bleau Murder Suspect Arrested in Las Vegas (Photo) - 09/09/14
On Monday September 8, 2014, 23-year-old Xavier Dorell Bolden was arrested in Las Vegas, Nevada by the Las Vegas Criminal Apprehension Team. Portland Police Bureau Homicide detectives are in Nevada today to continue this investigation.

Bolden was lodged at the Clark County (NV) Detention Center to await extradition to Oregon.
Bolden was arrested on a warrant for Murder in connection with the November 9, 2013 homicide of 30-year-old Durieul Joseph Harris outside the Fontaine Bleau Nightclub, located at 237 Northeast Broadway.

On the night of the shooting, North Precinct and Gang Enforcement Team officers responded to a large disturbance and shooting outside the club. Officers arrived to find a crowd of 75-100 people involved in a disturbance and Mr. Harris suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Mr. Harris died at the scene and officers learned that two other people suffered non-life-threatening gunshot wounds during the disturbance.

Anonymous tips given to Crime Stoppers of Oregon and a few brave witnesses coming forward were critical in securing an indictment for Xavier Bolden's arrest for Murder.

"I want to thank the Homicide detectives and members of our Gang Enforcement Team who spent countless hours investigating this case," said Chief Michael Reese. "I'm also thankful to the witnesses and people who came forward with information so that we could arrest the person responsible, bring justice to the family and friends of the victim and work to prevent retaliatory shootings."

Homicide detectives have conducted several interviews related to the shootings but believe that many other people fled the scene without talking to police and may have critical information that can assist in this investigation.

Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the investigators.
Anyone with second-hand information is asked to share it with police.

Information learned from social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter or YouTube should be shared with investigators as these tips may lead to the identification of a suspect or suspects. Links can be shared directly with investigators or anonymously through Crime Stoppers.

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in this case, or any unsolved felony, and you can remain anonymous.

Back to School 2014 - Operation Safe Return #20isPlenty (Photo) - 09/03/14
The Portland Police Bureau and the Portland Bureau of Transportation are partnering to keep Portland's students safe as they return to school this week.

To ensure student safety and increase awareness of the start of the school year, the Portland Police Bureau will be conducting high visibility patrols around all Portland schools as part of a "Back to School" safety campaign.

As part of this campaign, the Portland Police Bureau has released this short video with a friendly reminder that "20 is Plenty" in school zones: http://youtu.be/_llfG13Yo0I

Transportation Director Leah Treat said partnerships with police, schools and neighborhoods are essential to improve safety for everyone.

"As the new school year starts, it's important for everyone to be mindful of children walking to buses and crossing streets near schools," Treat said.

Beginning this week, many young people will be walking and riding their bicycles to school. Congestion in school zones will increase, especially during the busy morning and afternoon drop-off and pickup times.

The Portland Police Bureau Youth Services Division, Traffic Division, Transit Police Division, Central Precinct, North Precinct, East Precinct and Gang Enforcement Team personnel will be providing a highly visible police presence in and around schools in the Parkrose, Reynolds, Riverdale, David Douglas, Centennial, and Portland Public School Districts.

Dozens of officers, including Photo Radar Units, will be enforcing traffic laws in these zones to reduce the number of crashes in school zones and to create a safe environment for students returning to school.

There will be emphasis placed on traffic safety and traffic education for the students, bicyclists and drivers of motorized vehicles during the morning hours when students arrive at their schools and in the afternoon hours when the schools dismiss their students.

Hours of enhanced patrol will vary but generally will be between 7:45 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. then again from 2:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m.

In addition, the bureaus offer these safety tips:

* If you're driving, obey the 20 mph speed limit in school zones
* Be vigilant and courteous to children crossing the street.
* If you're a parent, consider walking or biking to school with your students where possible to reduce congestion, improve safety and provide young people with needed physical activity.

Portland Safe Routes to School is a partnership of the City of Portland, schools, neighborhoods, community organizations and agencies that advocates for and implements programs that make walking and biking around our neighborhoods and schools fun, easy, safe and healthy for all students and families while reducing our reliance on cars.

UPDATE: Update on Monday's Officer-Involved Shooting Investigation (Photo) - 09/02/14
Officer Honl fired a shotgun in this incident.

The Bureau regrets this omission in the update.

###PPB###

###ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW###

Detectives are continuing to investigate the circumstances of Monday's officer-involved shooting on I-84 in Northeast Portland.

Officer Michael Honl, a 17-year-veteran of the Portland Police Bureau assigned to East Precinct, is the involved officer. He is scheduled to be interviewed by investigators on Wednesday. Officer Honl fired a shotgun in this incident.

10 officers that witnessed the shooting have already been interviewed by detectives, along with several civilian witnesses in the area.

Detectives seized a black, replica semi-automatic air pistol from the crime scene that McClendon was carrying and pointing at people during this incident.

A photo of the actual replica firearm is being shared with the public.

While investigating the circumstances of the shooting and McClendon's background, detectives learned that 27-year-old Denorris Laron McClendon had contact with Portland Police officers on Sunday August 31, 2014, at approximately 8:00 p.m., the night before the incident on I-84.

The police contact was the result of a call from McClendon's grandmother, who told police that McClendon was suffering from a paranoid delusion and was in the backyard of her home swinging a wooden dowel at shrubbery, looking for the FBI. McClendon's grandmother told officers that McClendon had been doing this for a good part of the day. Additionally, she told officers that McClendon had broken both arms approximately 4 days earlier and had removed both casts himself.

Officers spoke with McClendon and noted the apparent injuries to his arms and he agreed to go a Portland hospital by ambulance, where he was placed on a police hold for a mental health evaluation and medical treatment.

Detectives learned that after McClendon's release from the hospital, he ingested a quantity of methamphetamine prior to the 9-1-1 calls on I-84.

Detectives would like to hear from anyone who had contact with McClendon before and during the incident on I-84.

Detectives would also like copies of any video or still images taken by witnesses in the area. These images can be emailed directly to detectives.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Chris Traynor at (503) 823-0449, christopher.traynor@portlandoregon.gov; or, Detective Bryan Steed at (503) 823-0395, bryan.steed@portlandoregon.gov.

###ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW###

On Monday September 1, 2014, at 9:56 a.m., North Precinct officers responded to the 122nd Avenue off-ramp from I-84 eastbound on the report of man walking along the ramp, armed with a handgun, pointing at passing cars. Additional callers reported that it appeared the man was trying to carjack drivers on the ramp.

An officer arrived in the area and the suspect pointed the gun at the officer then ran through traffic on the freeway. Multiple officers arrived in the area and all freeway traffic was shut down.

At some point, near the freeway, an officer fired shots and struck the suspect, who ran off the North side of the freeway and collapsed in the 11200 block of Northeast Fremont Street.

Officers began talking with the man who refused to comply with commands and indicated he wanted officers to shoot him.

The Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT) and Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT) responded and SERT was able to safely approach the man, using an armored vehicle, and take him into custody and render medical aid.

The man has been transported to a Portland hospital with what are believed to be non-life-threatening injuries.

A handgun was recovered next to the suspect. Detectives have not yet processed the crime scene to determine if the gun is a real firearm or a replica.

As is standard in all officer-involved shootings, Homicide detectives have responded and are in the early stages of the investigation.

Anyone who saw the man point a gun at them, witnesses to the man's behavior or saw the shooting itself, (that have not talked to police) are asked to call the Police Non-Emergency Line at (503) 823-3333.

The involved officer will be placed on paid Administrative Leave until the completion of the investigation, as is standard protocol. The name of the officer will be released within 24 hours.

Representatives from the Chief's Office, Mayor's Office, Training Division, Internal Affairs Division, East County Major Crimes Team, Office of Independent Police Review (IPR), Traumatic Incident Committee (TIC), and the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office all responded to the scene, as is standard protocol in any officer-involved shooting investigation.

I-84 remains closed and detectives and criminalists are working to process the crime scene on the freeway and get traffic moving.

Travelers East of Portland are encouraged to use the Bridge of the Gods and Washington State Route 14 to avoid delays. Drivers closer to Portland are encouraged to use surface streets to avoid the closure and rejoin I-84 West of the closure.
