Portland man stops attempted sexual assaultAugust 19, 2013 @ 10:34 am
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Portland police arrested a man accused of attempting to sexually assault a 6-year-old girl after entering a home through a bedroom window.
Sgt. Pete Simpson says the incident happened early Sunday in the St. Johns neighborhood in North Portland. He says 21-year-old Pedro Santiago Machi-Menchu of Vancouver, Wash., was pulled off the girl by a man who lives in the home and had gone to check on her and two other children.
The man dragged the suspect into the living room and held him until police arrived.
Machi-Menchu was booked into jail on charges of burglary and attempted sex abuse.
Simpson says the girl was visiting the home this weekend. She is the goddaughter of one of its residents.
