Assault suspect inflicts 'serious' injuries, police say
Portland police have released a sketch of a man who allegedly inflicted "serious" injuries during an assault.
Police say the suspect gave his name as "Jeremy" and is in his late 20s, about five feet ten, weighing 180 pounds with light brown, short hair.
He told his victim he works as a "quality assurance manager" at a local manufacturing facility and also claimed to be a "two-tour combat veteran."
Police say the suspect attacked a 41-year-old man near Northeast Davis Street and Sandy Boulevard on Saturday, Sept. 1 between 2:15 and 2:40 a.m.
The assault and forensic sketch were not announced to the public until now.
Police say the suspect was a stranger to the victim until they struck up a conversation at a Southeast Portland bar.
The victim was with his friend, but the suspect later "approached" the victim on the street after leaving a second bar.
