TIGARD, Oregon - Shortly after 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, police were sent to to a business in the 15300 block of SW Sequoia Parkway. A woman flagged a driver who said she had been attacked by a man inside her own car.
Officers learned the woman walked to her car, hit the unlock button and got inside. Once she closed the door, a man grabbed her from behind, restricting her breathing by covering her nose and mouth with his hand. She managed to get the car door open in an attempt to escape, but the man grabbed her with both arms. On her second attempt, she broke free and ran to get help. The passing driver called 911.
Responding officers quickly located a man in the area matching the suspect’s description, who had stolen the victim’s cell phone. He was later identified as Achitoi Hallucky, age 25, and was taken to jail on charges of kidnapping II, robbery III and strangulation.
