Dad punches man in face for lewd behavior near school

Police searching for a suspect


A Gresham dad walking his daughters to school spotted a man in a car near the school practicing lewd behavior while sitting in his car while watching school children. The incident happened about 10:10 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 1

When the dad approached the car and saw the man with his pants down and confronted him, the man giggled, so the dad punched him in the face, according to Gresham police spokesman Lt. Claudio Grandjean.

“The father responded by punching him in the face, which stopped both the giggling and sexual behavior,” he stated in a press release. The suspect then drove off northbound on Northeast Kane, from where the incident occurred, the report said.

The suspect is described as a light-skinned Hispanic male weighing about 180 pounds, according to police, and should have “fresh bruising on the left side of his jaw or eye.”

The suspect was driving a 1990-era gray, four-door Nissan Sentra with no license plate or possibly a dealer insert.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Gresham Police Tips Line at 503-618-2719.
