Oregon City police seek more information about the disturbance on a walking path that also resulted in injuries for a 21-year-old man.

Around 7:30 p.m. on Monday, March 28, police were called to the report of an assault with a weapon occurring between multiple teenagers and young adults. In addition to the girl, a 21-year-old man was found with multiple non-life-threatening injuries, which police say were caused both by a knife and other types of injuries. Both parties were transported to local hospitals to be treated for their injuries, and OCPD Sgt. Joseph Pagano said it is not known what may have been their affiliation with the college if any.

Several Oregon City patrol officers, assisted by the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office and Gladstone Police Department, arrived in the area to find a disturbance had occurred near the CCC walking path.

Oregon City detectives called to the scene to investigate are still trying to identify all the parties involved in the disturbance. Pagano said that detectives have a "rough estimate" of eight to 12 teenagers and young adults who were involved with, or who may have witnessed the altercation, but he said that number of involved parties "could certainly be higher."

"Not all involved parties stayed on scene to be interviewed," Pagano said on March 31. "It's still our belief that there are some outstanding individuals."

Detectives are asking for anyone who witnessed the event or has information regarding the parties involved to contact the Oregon City Police Department tip line at 503-496-1616, referencing OCPD Case #22-007166.
