'Handsome' man sought in house burglary

Portland officers were looking Saturday for an approximately 6-foot-tall black man in his 20s, with a muscular build wearing dark clothes after a report of an individual breaking into a home in the 3200 block of Northeast 16th Avenue.

Witnesses at approximately 1:21 p.m. described him as clean-shaven and "handsome." Officers are attempting to determine Oct. 4 if the suspect is still inside the home of the initial incident and are requesting SERT to assist with searching the location.

Officers arrived and learned that a person had forced his way into a home in the area and assaulted a resident. The victim was able to flee and contact the police.

The PPB is requesting that area residents call 911 if they see anything suspicous. Officers are searching the area now with a K-9 unit. SERT is responding to assist uniform officers.

The incident is ongoing and no additional information is available at this time.
