Man is arrested for Kidnap, Assault, Vehicle Theft and Attempt to Elude.
(KEIZER, Ore.) - A Seattle, Washington man is in custody tonight after he allegedly assaulted a Wilsonville woman and stole her sport utility vehicle by forcibly entering the vehicle near Wilsonville.
The suspect is identified as 31-year old Don W. Marlow of Seattle, Washington.
He says that at approximately 1:40 PM, Oregon State Police Northern Command Center dispatch received a report from 51-year old Desa Haraway of Wilsonville, that her vehicle had been stolen by a male suspect near the southbound Interstate 5 Donald exit at milepost 278.
"The victim reported she was earlier flagged down by the suspect near the Interstate 5 Stafford Road interchange, and as she rolled her window down he forcibly got into the vehicle and told her he needed a ride."
Haraway told police that at the Donald exit, she was assaulted by the suspect who overpowered her. He then took her vehicle and fled leaving her at the scene.
Stupfel says an OSP detective spotted the victim's vehicle westbound on Brook Lake Road near Brooks between Highway 9E and Interstate 5.
"The detective followed the victim's vehicle as it entered Interstate 5 southbound from the Brooks interchange," he said.
OSP troopers then took over surveillance of the vehicle, and they say it began to drive recklessly southbound and attempted to elude.
Exiting at the Keizer off ramp near milepost 260, Keizer police officers monitoring the incident successfully deployed spike strips at the top of the exit ramp. The vehicle collided with two other vehicles as it turned westbound on Chemawa Road from the off ramp.
Stupfel says the suspect's attempt to elude ended when he failed to negotiate a turn in the Keizer Station Complex, striking a curb and causing damage to the curb and disabling the vehicle.
He then reportedly attempted to flee on foot but was captured by OSP troopers and Keizer police officers.
The suspect, Don W. Marlow, was arrested by OSP on a number of charges and is being lodged in Marion County Jail.
He was arrested for Robbery in the Third Degree, Assault in the Fourth Degree, Theft in the First Degree, Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle, Felony Attempt to Elude in a Vehicle, Misdemeanor Attempt to Elude on Foot, Reckless Driving, Failing to Perform the Duties of a Driver in a Crash, and Criminal Mischief in the First Degree.
Police say Marlow did not require hospital treatment but did receive minor injuries.
Additional charges by Keizer Police Department are pending related to their crash investigation.
