Police seek suspect in one of two early-morning carjackings

Two suspects arrested in first incident on Millikan Way


Two separate carjacking and robbery attempts early Friday morning, one involving a physical assault, led to two arrests in the first incident and Beaverton police searching for a suspect in the second.

Officers arrested two suspects in the first reported carjacking just after midnight in the 14000 block of Southwest Millikan Way, and are searching for a suspect in another incident that took place around 3 a.m. near the intersection of Northwest Cornell Road and 113th Avenue.

In that incident, police were dispatched to the area at 2:44 a.m. and contacted the female victim at her nearby residence. The victim told police she stopped her car at a stop sign at the intersection when a Caucasian man walked in front of her car and entered her vehicle through the passenger door. The suspect displayed a knife and told the victim to drive.

The victim turned onto Northwest 113th Avenue and pulled her car to the side of the road. She was able to get her car keys from the ignition and run from the vehicle to her residence where she called police, said Officer Mike Rowe, Beaverton Police Department spokesman.

Officers found the victim’s vehicle where she had pulled over on 113th. Police searched the area with a police K-9, but did not locate the suspect, described as a white man with a mustache and wearing dark jeans, dark shirt and dirty shoes. He is thought to be a transient and is described as having a strong body odor, Rowe said.

Nothing appeared to be stolen from the vehicle or the victim. The suspect faces accusations of kidnapping, attempted rape and menacing.

In the earlier incident, a reported carjacking involving a gun at 14305 S.W. Millikan Way, Omarcus Zenus Rhone-Fields-James, 18, was taken into custody shortly after, while another 17-year-old boy, whose name was not released, was picked up shortly after.Omarcus Zenus Rhone-Fields-James

Police were dispatched to the area at 12:09 a.m. Officers contacted the victim, who said an African American man confronted him with a gun as he was leaving work and ordered him to hand over his car keys. The victim handed over his keys, and the subject got in his car, driving east on Southwest Millikan. The victim was not injured during the robbery, Rowe said.

An officer spotted the victim's vehicle, a blue Lexus XE300 sedan, on Southwest Electric Street at 12:29 a.m. Two males ran from the vehicle, and one was taken into custody at the vehicle. The second suspect was tracked to an apartment on Electric Street and taken into custody a short time later.

The suspects were taken to the Beaverton Police Department before being transported to the Washington County Jail.
