Police attempt to track robbery, assault suspect
Police were able to arrest Kaylynn M. Spencer, 26, an alleged accomplice of the suspect, charging her with assault and robbery.
PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – The Portland Police Bureau (PPB) is looking for a man who allegedly assaulted another man after he attempted to steal car parts Thursday morning.
PPB says the suspect is facing felony charges.
Just before 6.30am, officers responded to a report of a disturbance outside a home in the 8900 block of North Kimbrell Ave., located in the Portsmouth neighborhood. Upon arrival, they found an injured 64-year-old man and several neighbors holding down a suspect, later identified as 26-year-old Kaylynn M. Spencer, who was arrested at the scene.
Police say when the victim saw someone trying to steal car parts from his vehicle, he came out to confront the man, which sparked an altercation. Spencer, believed to be an accomplice to the suspect, allegedly got involved and struck the victim with a metal file. According to police, Spencer was held by a group of people from the neighborhood, including the victim’s wife, until officers arrived.
The victim suffered head injuries during the altercation, according to the police, but refused to go to the hospital.
Spencer was incarcerated in Multnomah County Jail for second-degree assault, second-degree robbery, and unlawful use of a weapon. Police are still trying to locate the male suspect.
