[ARCHIVED] Help ID Assault Suspects from 7th/Washington May 29/30

Eugene Police Department’s Special Investigations Unit has been working steadfastly to provide safe conditions for the ongoing protests and marches, while also following up with an investigation regarding the looting and property damage from a riot on the nights of May 29 and into the early hours of May 30. 


Among the many people involved in the riot, EPD SIU is needing help to identify the suspects in an incident where a rideshare driver with two passengers was stopped and blocked at the Washington Street on-ramp to eastbound I-105, surrounded by rioters, and then assaulted after the her vehicle was also damaged. 


The vehicle’s rear window was broken out and the exterior dented by people kicking and punching the vehicle. During this, the two passengers fled. The driver exited the vehicle as well, and then was surrounded, punched in the face and stomach, and knocked to the ground. She ran back to her vehicle and was able to get in and leave. She was subsequently transported by Eugene Springfield Fire EMS to a local hospital for treatment of her injuries.  


Attached is a video clip of the involved. Case 2008917


If anyone has tips in this case, or has any information about the identities of other people involved in crimes related to the riot, they are asked to contact 1-541-262-5388 (the number requires a “1” for this particular number).


Detectives assigned to the Eugene Police Department Special Investigations Unit have been working on identifying those involved in the vandalism events surrounding the recent protests. The detectives are specifically focused on the damage caused the night of May 29 and into the morning of May 30. This investigation involves reviewing hours and hours of video footage and, as a result, a large amount of detective time. Due to the nature of the armed robbery the Special Investigations detectives felt it was important to seek community assistance as soon as this incident was observed on the video.  It is anticipated more individuals will be identified and arrested as a result of their criminal conduct but this investigation could takes weeks to complete. We will seek out additional help as we develop more suspects.
