A suspect is facing felony charges after an assault related to a car prowl in the Portsmouth Neighborhood.

On Thursday, March 31, 2022 at 6:25a.m., North Precinct officers were dispatched to a report of a disturbance outside a house in the 8900 block of North Kimball Avenue. When they arrived, they found an adult male injured and neighbors holding down a female suspect. They arrested the suspect.

The investigation revealed that the victim saw someone prowling his car out in front of his house and went outside to confront him. A fight ensued. An accomplice of that adult male suspect, Kaylynn M. Spencer, a 26-year-old female, jumped in and began striking the victim with a metal file, causing injuries. The victim’s wife and some neighbors held Spencer down until officers got there. The male suspect has not yet been located.

The victim, a 64-year-old male, declined ambulance transport to the hospital but had significant injuries to his head. A metal file (photo) was seized as evidence.

Spencer was interviewed by detectives and booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center on charges of Assault in the Second Degree, Robbery in the Second Degree, and Unlawful Use of a Weapon.

A photograph of the unknown suspect is attached. He may use the street name "MK." If anyone has information about this case or the identity of the suspect, please e-mail and reference case number 22-85658.
