McMinnville police have identified the victim of an assault that occurred downtown early Sunday morning as Andrew Elpidio Agcaoili, 31, of 1795 N.W. Second St., McMinnville.
He was transported by McMinnville Fire Department ambulance to the Willamette Valley Medical Center and later transferred to Oregon Health & Science University in Portland. He sustained a traumatic brain injury and was listed in critical condition, according to Sgt. Tim Symons of the McMinnville police.
Symons gave this account:
Officers responded to a reported disturbance about 3 a.m. in the area of Northeast Davis and Third streets. The Yamhill Communications Agency dispatch center was told the victim was bleeding from the back of his head and unconsious. Dispatch was also told that some individuals involved in the incident had left the area.
Agcaoili was found lying on the sidewalk in the area of the northwest corner of Davis and Third, near the Ben Franklin statue located in the U.S. Bank plaza. Medical personnel administered aid before transporting him to the McMinnville hospital.
According to witnesses, Agcaoili and Adrian Ulloa, 31, of 2242 S.W. Taylor Drive, McMinnville, were together and involved in a disturbance with a group of four to six individuals. Witnesses were unable to provide a clothing description of those who left the scene, but said they were males in their late 20s to early 30s.
Ulloa sustained minor injuries and was transported from the scene by friends, according to Symons.
"We have identified players in the other group, but we're still sorting through things in an attempt to get the right person (beating suspect)," he said.
He said detectives are investigating the possibility that Agcaoili and Ulloa were involved in a confrontation at a bar prior to when the assault took place. Symons said the group of four to six individuals are all from Yamhill County, but not necessarily McMinnville.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Detective Michelle Formway at 503-434-2340 or call the YCOM non-emergency number at 503-434-6500.
