On Wednesday morning, at 5:51 a.m., Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to an injury crash in Corbett near the 49100 block of Southeast Louden Road. When deputies and firefighters arrived, they determined that the driver was deceased. Because of the severity of the crash, the East County Vehicular Crimes Team was activated.

Southeast Louden Road was closed for several hours during the investigation.

Original release on Monday, May 17:

The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) is asking the public to help identify suspects involved in a brutal assault that occurred near the Sandy River at Glenn Otto Park Sunday night. The assault was captured on camera and shared with MCSO. The case is under investigation by MCSO Detectives.

At approximately 7:36 p.m., on May 16, 2021, MCSO deputies responded to a report of an assault at 1110 E. Historic Columbia River Highway in Troutdale. When deputies arrived, they located two adult males with injuries.

It was reported a group of individuals swam across the Sandy River, confronted the victims, and proceeded to violently attack the victims, who are brothers. One man, who appears to be wearing salmon colored shorts, used a large stick more than once to assault one of the victims. Multiple male suspects participated and continued to assault one of the victims by punching, kicking and stomping, even as he was laying on the ground defenseless.

It is also alleged individuals in the aggressing group used homophobic slurs prior to and during the assault. Detectives are considering bias crime charges.

“This is a serious and appalling assault that occurred in broad daylight at a family-friendly, riverfront beach,” Law Enforcement Chief Deputy Nicole Morrisey O’Donnell said. “We are actively investigating the assault, and we are urging the public to come forward with information that may lead to an arrest of these individuals. Violence has no place in Multnomah County.”

When deputies arrived, the suspects had left the area. At this time, no arrests have been made. A video of the assault is being shared in an attempt to identify those involved in the assault. If anyone has information or additional video, please call the MCSO Tip Line at 503-988-0560 and reference case number 21-24002. As a warning, the video contains violence and profane language.

Video is publicly available on YouTube (by clicking the link).

The investigation is ongoing, and no further comment will be made at this time.
