In the evening hours of Sunday April 30, 2017, East Precinct officers arrested a 29-year-old man in connection with a burglary and sexual assault that occurred in the area of 122nd Avenue and East Burnside Street.

29-year-old Sean Leon Lacy Jr. was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Kidnap in the First Degree, Rape in the First Degree, Sodomy in the First Degree, Unlawful Sexual Penetration in the First Degree, and Burglary in the First Degree.

The investigation started on Sunday April 30, 2017, at 7:13 p.m., when East Precinct officers responded to the MAX platform at 122nd Avenue and East Burnside Street on the report that two men were holding down another man after some sort of theft or burglary. Officers arrived in the area and took the suspect into custody then learned that the suspect ran from a nearby residence after breaking in and sexually assaulting a young woman.

Due to the sensitive nature of the investigation, no additional information will be released in this case. The victim and family are requesting complete privacy.

Anyone with information about Lacy is asked to contact Detective Jason Christensen at 503-823-0894, jchristensen@portlandoregon.gov.
