More than 65 people report slashed tires in NE Portland neighborhood, investigators say

Investigators now believe more than 65 people had their tires slashed in Portland’s Roseway neighborhood earlier this month.

And the case, originally estimated to have included more than 50 victims, has the attention of Crime Stoppers of Oregon, which is offering a reward for any information leading to an arrest in the case.

The organization said the suspect is approximately 6 feet tall and 250 pounds. The description comes from a home video of a man in a baseball cap walking up a driveway and striking the tires of a vehicle with some kind of instrument.

Suspect Tire Slashing

Officers first responded to a report of a car with two punctured tires around 8:50 a.m. Oct. 1 in the 2800 block of Northeast 72nd Avenue.

The damage is estimated to cost tens of thousands of dollars, Crime Stoppers said in a statement Tuesday.

Dan Holland told The Oregonian/OregonLive that he was heading out to run errands Oct. 1 when a neighbor approached him to say a lot of people had their tires slashed overnight. Holland’s Mini Cooper and his mother-in-law’s Honda CR-V had damaged tires.

Another Roseway resident, Sharon Greenberg, said her partner was going to work Saturday morning when he realized all four tires were punctured on his Toyota Tacoma. She told The Oregonian/OregonLive that she’s lived on Northeast 72nd Avenue across from Roseway Heights Middle School since 2009, and that this was the first widespread act of vandalism she can recall.

Crime Stoppers offers up to $2,500 for information that leads to an arrest in felony cases. Tips can be submitted at
