David Abraham Marcus, 27, was booked into the Multnomah County Jail early Friday morning on charges of Kidnap in the First Degree and Attempted Rape in the First Degree.
This investigation started on June 22, 2016, at 12:20 a.m., when Central Precinct officers responded to Southeast 27th Avenue and Bybee Boulevard on the report of an attempted abduction.
Officers arrived and spoke with the 22-year-old woman who told police that she was walking home from the QFC grocery store at Southeast Milwaukie Avenue and Duke Street. The victim told police that she was walking eastbound on Bybee Boulevard and was approaching 27th Avenue when an unknown man came up behind her, grabbed her in a bear hug and started pulling her towards the Eastmoreland Golf Course parking lot. The victim told police that the suspect continued to pull her towards the back of a car and tried to push her inside.
The victim told police that she fought and screamed and was able to break away from the suspect and run. The victim told police that she ran to a nearby house and asked them to call 9-1-1. The victim did not require medical attention at the scene.
The victim described the suspect as a white, Hispanic or mixed-race male in his 30s, oval-faced, no facial hair, approximately 6'00" tall, thick build, thick fingers, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, possibly wearing blue jeans, and unknown style work boots. The victim described the vehicle as a newer SUV, with a split-opening style tailgate, with the glass pulling up and the tailgate pulling down.
Detectives conducted extensive investigation but did not immediately develop any leads.
This week, new information was developed leading to the identification and arrest of Marcus.
