(AMITY, Ore. ) - Police in McMinnville and Amity are searching for a suspect and vehicle in connection with a week long investigation involving multiple threats and assaults against a family living on Highway 99E in Amity.

McMinnville Police Captain Dennis Marks says on Wednesday around 1:00 p.m., an Amity officer received a message from the third party that another incident had occurred at the Amity residence, and that the suspect may have been seriously injured.

Police from Amity, McMinnville, and the Yamhill County Sheriff's Office responded and initiated an investigation of the incident. Those agencies were assisted by Oregon State Police, and Yamhill County District Attorney 's Office and Crime Victims Assistance Office.

Based on the statements from the residents, the suspect approached a family member and attempted to grab them. A struggle ensued and the male suspect was injured and ran off. He got into a vehicle with two other occupants and drove away from the scene northbound on Highway 99W, Marks said.

Police are looking for a Hispanic male in his 20's, clean shaven, slender, just over 5 feet tall. The suspect also has a dragon tattoo on his left forearm along with some oriental letters or writing. The male could have a significant injury to his lower left abdomen.

The suspect fled the scene in a 1990's red or maroon SUV -- possibly a Chevy Blazer or similar body design -- with a male driver and a white female passenger.

Marks added that these series of incidents appear to be targeted to a specific family, and is not a likely threat to the rest of the community.

Anyone with information regarding this incident or related incidents is asked to call Detective Hugo Cerda at 503-435-5615 or Chief Dan Brown at 503-835-8606.

If you see the suspect or vehicle associated with this case, contact your local police department, or call 9-1-1.
