Suspect Facing Attempted Murder Charges Related to January Shooting (Photo) - 08/11/22

A suspect is facing Attempted Murder charges after his arrest relating to a Montavilla neighborhood shooting in January.

On Monday, January 31, 2022 at 1:14a.m., East Precinct officers responded to a report of a shooting in the 1200 block of Northeast 76th Avenue (photo). When they arrived, they located a shooting victim with serious injuries. He was transported to the hospital by ambulance.

The Enhanced Community Safety Team (ECST) responded to investigate the shooting. Over the course of several months, detectives gathered and processed evidence, and spoke to the victim and witnesses. On Wednesday, August 10, 2022, ECST and the Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT) served an arrest warrant at a residence in the 400 block of Northeast 76th Avenue. They arrested Peter C. Martin (AKA Peter C. Vey), 43.

Martin was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center on charges of Attempted Murder in the Second Degree, Assault in the First Degree, Assault in the Second Degree, and Unlawful Use of a Weapon.

The victim, an adult male, has since been released from the hospital and is still recovering from his injuries.

"This is yet another example of diligent and tenacious investigation by ECST," said Chief Chuck Lovell. "East Precinct officers who responded to the scene and the criminalists from the Forensic Evidence Division also played a critical role in this case. I'm grateful for the ongoing great work by SERT, who helped safely take this dangerous suspect into custody. This case represents over 6 months of investigative work. Those who commit gun violence in our community should know that PPB will continue working to build cases and making arrests no matter how long it takes."

The Portland Police Bureau is asking for the public’s help in locating a dangerous suspect.

The suspect in this case is identified as 33-year-old Jacob Matthew Ray Anderson. Anderson is wanted for his dangerous actions on July 24, 2022, when he hit a Portland Police officer while fleeing in a stolen vehicle. The officer sustained serious injuries and was transported to a local hospital for surgery.

In addition to being wanted in Multnomah County, Jacob Anderson has warrants out of Benton County, Lincoln County, and Clackamas County. Anderson is the suspect in other Portland cases, and was able to be identified as the suspect in this case due to Bureau members’ interactions with him. Anderson’s most recent arrest by the Portland Police Bureau occurred on June 29, 2022. East Precinct officers were dispatched to a crash in the 2300 Block of Southeast 157th Street. Officers arrived to find Jacob Anderson inside a vehicle that crashed into another vehicle, and then a tree. Anderson was unresponsive after officers’ attempts at rousing him. Anderson regained consciousness after Portland Fire and AMR units administered aid.

Anderson was transported to the hospital due to the condition he was found in. Officers cited Anderson for Driving Under the Influence (Controlled Substance), Reckless Endangering, Reckless Driving, Possession of a Controlled Substance, and Felon in Possession of a Firearm.

Jacob Anderson is 5’9” tall and has a slim build, weighing approximately 160 lbs. He was last seen with wavy brown hair around 2”-3” long, but has been known to change his appearance by shaving his head. Anderson has a mole on his left cheek. Two pictures of Anderson are included to help with identification.

The suspect then hit another vehicle, which was occupied by two people. The officer was transported to an area hospital with serious, non-life-threatening injuries. An elderly female passenger from the other vehicle was transported to an area hospital with unknown injuries.

Additional officers responded to the area and quickly located the stolen vehicle but the suspect had fled on foot. Officers established a perimeter and are searching the area from Southeast 148th Avenue to Southeast 152nd Avenue, from Southeast Division Street to Southeast Stark Street.

DUII Suspect Arrested for Bias Crime Against Officers (Photo) - 07/31/22

A suspect was arrested for a bias crime against female officers after a car crash incident in which a hostile crowd formed and interfered with police.

On Saturday, July 30, 2022 at 5:46p.m., North Precinct officers were dispatched to an injury accident at North Houghton Street and North Haven Avenue. When they arrived, they found a 1998 Nissan Altima 4-door sedan on its top. Two adult occupants suffered minor injuries. Another adult and a 5-year-old child in the car were not visibly hurt.

One injured occupant, Dominique R. Gonzales, 27, of Portland, began leaving the scene and officers had reasonable suspicion that he had been the driver. Despite being given numerous requests and orders to remain on scene, Gonzales refused. When officers attempted to take him into custody, he physically resisted the officers. Two other occupants of the vehicle, Gregory L. Robinson, 33, of Portland, and Sasha M. Lundy, 35, of Portland, attempted to interfere with officers who were trying to detain Gonzales. They both tried to push past officers to physically intervene in the arrest. The commotion caused several other people to emerge from nearby homes. Several closely surrounded the officers and refused orders to give the officers space to work. The hostile situation prompted a call for "code 3 cover," meaning officers need immediate assistance and additional officers should respond with emergency lights and sirens. As many as 16 officers and sergeants were on scene at once. Paramedics were also on scene and were unable to get them to cooperate with medical treatment. Gonzales and Robinson were arrested.

During the confrontation, officers attempted numerous de-escalation techniques trying to calm the situation. However, Lundy began targeting a female sergeant and a female officer, threatening to assault them because of her perception of their race and gender. The female bureau members attempted to further deescalate by moving away from her while stating they did not want to fight her, but she continued advancing on them in a physically threatening manner. Lundy was arrested.

Upon further investigation, officers learned that Lundy was the driver. She had struck a parked car after turning a corner, causing the Nissan to overturn (photo). Alcohol and speed were factors in the crash.

After consulting with Bias Crime Unit detectives, an officer served Lundy with a criminal citation for Bias Crime in the Second Degree, DUII-Alcohol, and Menacing. Gonzales was issued a criminal citation for Interfering with a Peace Officer. Robinson was issued a criminal citation for Interfering with a Peace Officer. The child was reunited with a parent. The vehicle was towed from the scene.

The Bureau investigates all reports of bias-motivated crimes and encourages any member of our community who is the victim of such a crime to contact law enforcement. Under Oregon law, bias crimes are defined as any criminal act that targets a victim based on the suspect's perception of the victim's race, color, religion, sexual orientation, disability, gender identity or national origin. Detectives work to determine whether or not bias elements are present during the reported crime that align with Oregon law as defined in the Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS):

* ORS 166.165 - Bias Crime in the First Degree - https://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/166.165
* ORS 166.155 - Bias Crime in the Second Degree - https://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/166.155

If you have been the victim of a bias crime assault or you are witnessing one, immediately call 9-1-1. If you have been the victim of a different bias crime and the suspect is no longer present, such as vandalism or graffiti, please call the non-emergency line at 503-823-3333.

To learn more about bias crime investigations and reported bias/hate crime statistics within the City of Portland, please visit https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/77066

As the car was now a hazard and unable to be driven away, the car needed to be towed, which requires a vehicle inventory. During the inventory of the car by officers, a firearm and loaded magazine were found in a bag laying in a child’s car seat. The firearm was seized as part of the investigation.

UPDATE: PPB Civilian Dean of Training Conditional Employment Offer Withdrawn - 07/20/22

The City has withdrawn the conditional offer of employment for Tom Datro as the Academic Training Director. The recruitment process will restart as soon as possible.

###PPB###

###ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW###

Following an extensive hiring process, Dr. Thomas Datro, EdD, MPA, has been selected to be the new Civilian Dean of Training at the Portland Police Bureau. Born and raised on the south side of Chicago, Tom moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in law enforcement. He has 20 years of experience, and is currently a sergeant with the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), but will be a non-sworn civilian member of PPB.

Since 2017, Dr. Datro has served as the Officer-In-Charge of the Police Science and Leadership Section of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Training Division. He works closely and was mentored by LAPD's Civilian Dean of Training.

Dr. Datro has significant experience in adult education principles and is currently responsible for department-wide training to sworn and civilian employees on a variety of subjects, including: procedural justice, implicit bias, de-escalation, community engagement and trust building, crisis communication, and other areas. His most recent work involved creating and implementing training on the neuroscience of de-escalation emphasizing critical thinking, decision making, and leadership.

Dr. Datro holds a Doctorate of Education with a focus in organizational change and leadership from the University of Southern California. He earned a Master's Degree in Public Administration from California State University at Northridge and a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice Management from Union Institute and University.

PPB's Training Division is responsible for ongoing training delivered through the Learning Management System, as well as annual in-service training for Bureau members, Advanced Academy; Sergeant’s Academy and the Community Academy. It is also responsible for all recruits and their training during their probationary period. A few years ago, adding a Civilian Dean of Training was proposed internally, but it became a reality recently when the appropriate funding was granted and it was incorporated into the City's agreement with the Department of Justice.

"I was deeply impressed with Dr. Datro and believe adding him into this new position is an integral part of continuing our innovative reform work," said Chief Chuck Lovell. "PPB has been on the forefront of cutting-edge police training and we look forward to Dr. Datro contributing to these ongoing efforts."

"Dr. Datro was chosen after a rigorous selection process that included input from community members and Council offices," said Mayor Ted Wheeler. "This newly appointed position fits with my vision to Refocus, Reform and Restaff community safety in the City of Portland and is in alignment with the settlement agreement between the City and the US Department of Justice. Dr. Datro’s experience in the field of law enforcement training and his commitment to community engagement will enhance our ongoing efforts to reform the system by increasing accountability and transparency in community safety."

This hiring process included 18 applicants and involved sworn and professional staff members, Chief's Office, staff from elected officials, community members, and another law enforcement civilian dean from a major city. PPB developed interview questions with input from the Portland Committee on Community-Engaged Policing (PCCEP) and PPB's Coalition of Advisory Groups, which has representatives from: the Training Advisory Committee; Slavic Advisory Committee; Muslim Advisory Committee; Behavioral Health Advisory Committee; African-American Advisory Committee; Latino Advisory Committee; Alliance of Safer Communities Advisory Committee; and the Asian Pacific Islander Advisory Committee.

Dr. Datro has accepted the position, which is contingent on a background investigation. Dr. Datro's start date will be determined at a later date.
