Assault Suspect Arrested in Newberg After Lengthy Search


News Release from Yamhill Co. Sheriff's Office
Posted on FlashAlert: August 7th, 2017 1:56 PM
This morning at about 7:40 a caller reported to dispatch that they had interrupted an assault in progress at the old SP Newsprint property on Wynooski Road just outside the City of Newberg. The business is currently vacant but being patrolled by private security.

After being discovered by the caller, the suspect fled the area. Responding law enforcement units were able to get the suspect's name from the victim, and he was identified as Matthew Nathaniel Lindsey, 26 years old of Newberg. It appears Lindsey was some type of acquaintance with the victim.

The adult victim, who is not being named at this time due to the continuing investigation, was taken to OHSU by helicopter for precautionary reasons but we are being advised her wounds do not appear to be life threatening. She is cooperating with the investigation. For these same reasons, details of the assault will not be released. At this time we are advising the wounds the victim received appear to be from an edged blade.

A search was conducted by law enforcement from several different jurisdictions, including Clackamas County's air support helicopter, YCSO Marine Patrol, and Beaverton PD and Newberg PD K-9 units. The Yamhill County Sheriff's Office was also assisted by the McMinnville Police Department and the Oregon State Police.

At about 12:50 p.m. a Newberg Police Officer located the suspect and took him into custody approximately a half-mile away in the 500 block of First Street in Newberg. At the time of this media release, the suspect is in the custody of the Yamhill County Sheriff's Office Special Investigations Unit and the investigation is continuing.

We anticipate releasing additional information in the near future.
