HILLSBORO, Oregon - At 7:45 a.m., a community member called 9-1-1 reporting a man assaulting a woman in the loading dock of Costco, 1255 Northeast 48th Avenue. The man got in a semi-truck and drove off, while the woman was left behind. An off-duty officer saw the truck driving recklessly from the parking lot onto Northeast Cornell Road. The officer also called 9-1-1.

A few minutes later, an on-duty officer found the truck driving on Northeast Evergreen Parkway and tried to stop it. The man refused to stop, and due to weather and traffic conditions at the time the officer did not pursue it. Community members then called 9-1-1 in the downtown area of Hillsboro reporting the truck driving recklessly.

As officers tried to locate it, a 9-1-1 caller reported the truck stuck along railroad tracks near Southwest Bailey Avenue north of Southwest Wood Street. The man ran from the scene, but he was found by officers at First Avenue and West Main Street. He briefly continued running, but he stopped when ordered and was arrested without further incident.

The woman suffered minor injuries in the incident and did not require hospitalization. It was learned the man picked up the woman in the Tacoma, Washington area, and he brought her to Hillsboro against her will.

The man, 61-year-old Alfonzo Summers of Flint, Michigan, was lodged in the Washington County Jail on charges of second-degree kidnapping, strangulation, harassment, recklessly endangering, attempting to elude police, reckless driving, driving under the influence of intoxicants, failure to perform duties of driver when property is damaged, second-degree criminal mischief, unlawful delivery of cocaine, unlawful possession of cocaine, and first-degree criminal trespass.
