Jogger fights off armed robber
The male victim fought with the suspect, inflicting injuries that could include a broken arm, according to Capt. Dennis Marks of the McMinnville police, who gave this account of the 4 a.m. incident:
The victim was initially confronted by the three men verbally. A short time later, they pulled up in a yellow or light-colored Cadillac with a dent on the back bumper.
One of the men got out, displayed a chrome handgun and demanded the victim either hand over some money or get into the car. But the victim fought the suspect off, then sprinted home.
The gunman suffered injuries to the left side of his face, in addition to a possible broken arm. Police alerted local medical authorities in case he seeks treatment.
The gunman was described as 5-foot-10 and 135 to 150 pounds. He was wearing a red T-shirt and dark baggy pants with a dark beanie-style hat.
Anyone with potentially relevant information is asked to contact officer Ryan McMullen at 503-434-7307.
