Portland Police arrest man at PCC

Two firearms located in trunk of vehicle

Portland Police arrested a man after he reportedly brought two unloaded weapons to Portland Community College’s Sylvania campus on Tuesday morning.

Jacob Rosen, 35, was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of fourth-degree assault, harassment and menacing on April 15 after he was stopped while pulling into a parking lot at PCC Sylvania.

Officers from Portland’s North Precinct responded to a call at a home in the 9700 block of North Leonard Street in Portland. Officers were reportedly told that a suicidal man left the home armed with a shotgun and was on his way to PCC Sylvania.

Officers began checking the area around the campus, located at 12000 S.W. 49th Ave., and relayed information to Sylvania’s campus security.

Rosen was reportedly spotted in the campus’ parking lot, where he was stopped.

A shotgun and handgun were found in the trunk of the vehicle. Neither firearm was loaded and no ammunition was found in the vehicle.

Rosen was arrested without incident said Sgt. Pete Simpson, a spokesman for the Portland Police Bureau. Simpson said Rosen’s charges stem from incidents of domestic violence.

Police said there was no information that Rosen intended to harm anyone other than himself and that he was never a threat to other students at the community college.

Rosen was scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday in Multnomah County Court after The Times’ press deadline.
