Portland man arrested for Cornelius car jacking

A Portland man was arrested after stealing a car in Cornelius and leading law enforcement officials from several agencies on a chase.

Raymond Osborne, 58. is charged with Robbery I, Assault II, Unauthorized Use of a Vehicle, and Theft I. His bail is set at $250,000.

The victim sustained minor injuries.

According to the Washington County Sheriff's Office, at about 10 a.m. on Dec. 14, deputies serving the City of Cornelius, responded to a reported stolen car at 366 N. 1st. Place. The 46-year-old victim reported that he had left his car running in front of his house. He said he saw a man get in his car and he ran out to confront him.

The victim said he yelled at the suspect, later identified as Osborne, and opened the door of the car. He said Osborne shoved the door into him and then sped off, knocking him to the ground. The victim sustained minor injuries.

Deputies broadcast a "Be On the Look Out," which alerts all the police in the area of the stolen car. A Oregon State Police trooper spotted the car in the City of Banks and attempted to stop it.

Osborne lead the trooper on a pursuit that eventually ended with him crashing on Highway 26 and Lower Nehalem Road in Tillamook County. Two WCSO deputies were close behind and assisted in taking Osborne into custody.
