(OREGON CITY) - Police in Gresham say they are looking for a man they believe is responsible for a car jacking that took place December 30th at 1:30 PM in the parking lot of the Regal movie theater located at 1500 Molalla Avenue, Oregon City.

Det Sgt James Band with Oregon City Police says 24-year old Andrey Karachenets made contact with a woman in her vehicle, contact that led to the woman's car being jacked.

"Karachenets asked the woman for a ride. When she refused to give him a ride he jumped into her vehicle and attempted to take her keys and steal her vehicle. The woman was able to get out of the vehicle with her keys and yell for help."

Band say says Karachenets ran on foot to the Danielson's Market Place,located in the same complex and approached a male subject sitting in his vehicle in front of the store.

Karachenets asked the man for a ride and when he refused, Karachenets jumped into the man's vehicle and tried to steal the keys and the car, Band said.

"The victim struggled with Karachenets and Karachenets bit the victim creating an injury. An off duty sheriff's deputy happened to walk out of the store and see the struggle going on. He was able to apprehend the suspect and detain him until the Oregon City Police Department arrived."

This guy is not illegal, he lives here legally.

I agree... this guy is clearly a habitual dangerous felon... prison time then return him to country of origin with a lifetime ban on re entry to the US. I also do not care where an illegal is from... if they are illegal they must go. But this guy was not stated as being here illegally, just not a US Citizen. But if convicted his actions justify him being persona non grata. Ah well...

Good If he is not a citizen ICE him Incarcerate him for his criminal activity if he is found guilty and deport him. It makes no difference to me where a illegal criminal alien comes from...
