Monday, February 20, 2017
Miguel Gomez, 21, is being charged with burglary in the first degree, kidnap in the first degree, attempted rape in the first degree, and interfering with making a police report.
He will be arraigned on Tuesday.
On Saturday February 18, 2017, at 10:15 p.m., North Precinct officers responded to the Village Garden Apartments in the 15200 block of Northeast Sandy Boulevard on the report that an unknown naked man pushed himself into a woman's apartment. The woman, 28, told police that she was able to escape with her two children, ages two and eight.
Officers arrived in the area and learned that the suspect forced his way into the victim's apartment via the fourth floor balcony, grabbed onto her and pulled her towards the bathroom. The victim was able to escape and tried to call 9-1-1, but the suspect interfered with the call so she grabbed her two kids and escaped to a neighboring apartment to call 9-1-1. The victim did not suffer any serious physical injuries. The victim told police that she recognized the man as a former resident of the apartment complex.
Officers established containment on the apartment then, assisted by a Canine Unit, began searching the apartment. The suspect was discovered hiding behind a couch where he was arrested without incident.
Gomez was booked into the Multnomah County Jail.
