Final suspect sought in Glenn Otto assault
One final suspect remains unidentified from a brutal attack last weekend at the Sandy River near Troutdale's Glenn Otto Community Park that left two brothers battered and bloodied.
Multnomah County Sheriff's Deputies are seeking the public's help in identifying a suspect who was seen via video kicking one of the victims during the assault Sunday evening, May 16. At the time of the attack, the unknown suspect was wearing a grey shirt with the number "4" printed on the front and back, dark colored jeans, a grey hat and a necklace.
Investigators thank the public for helping identify the other suspects in the attack. The Sheriff's Office received about 90 tips through a 24-hour period that led to the majority of the assailants being brought in for questioning.
At this time no arrests have been made or charges filed.
The attack occurred around 7:36 p.m. According to police, a group of individuals swam across the river and confronted the victims, proceeding to violently attack them. The assault was captured on camera, and it is unclear how many participated in the attack, though at one point the video showed six suspects violently harming a victim.
The assault included punches, kicks and stomps as one victim lay on the ground defenseless. One of the suspects used a large stick during the attack. Allegedly, the suspects used homophobic slurs prior to and during the assault. The Sheriff's Office is investigating potential bias crimes.
If you have information or additional videos that would identify the final suspect, call the MCSO Tip Line at 503-988-0560 and reference case number No. 21-24002.
