On Saturday, September 22 at about 8:30 p.m., a local high school student reported that she was sexually abused in a gravel parking lot at Autzen Stadium during the football game.
The suspect was described as a white male, about 5-foot-7 with slight build, 35-40 years old, clean-shaven, with short, black-and-gray hair, wearing a dark UO hooded sweatshirt, tan shorts, and gray-and-orange Nike shoes. He reportedly carried a beer bottle and smokeless tobacco, but did not appear intoxicated.
The girl reported that the suspect called out to her in a friendly, almost familiar way in the parking lot, then approached her and forced her to walk to a secluded spot between parked vehicles, and subjected her to inappropriate sexual contact.
Kidnapping is added to the offense because the suspect interfered with the victim's liberty and moved her, without her consent or any legal authority, from one place to another.
Anyone with information about this suspect or similar incidents should call Eugene Police at 541-682-5111 or UODPS at 541-346-2919.
Updates regarding this incident, when and if available, will be posted on the UODPS website at police.uoregon.edu.
