Portland Police Bureau– 03/12/12
On March 8, 2012, 26-year-old Quincy Wynn was arrested and charged with three counts of Assault in the Second Degree and one count of Tampering With Physical Evidence. This arrest is in connection with a January 2012 assault on a 15-year-old male near the Rose Quarter Transit Station.
On Wednesday January 11, 2012, at 8:07 p.m., police officers from the Transit Police Division were dispatched to the report of a fight at the TriMet MAX platform at 1000 North Interstate Avenue(Yellow Line).
Officers arrived within minutes and located the victim, a 15-year-old male, and called for medical personnel to respond. The victim eventually was transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Officers learned that the victim left a wrestling tournament at Benson High School and was on his way home. The victim was crossing North Interstate Avenue to get to the northbound Yellow Line when the driver of a silver Toyota Avalon yelled something at the victim as he crossed the street. The victim was wearing ear buds, so he pulled them out and asked what was said, and then the driver of the Avalon got out and punched the victim in the head.
The victim then stumbled and fell down on to the MAX tracks where the suspect came over and kicked him in the head, then got back in the Avalon and drove away northbound on North Interstate Avenue.
Several witnesses talked to police about what occurred and provided information about the suspect as well as the license plate of the suspect vehicle.
Portland Police Detectives assigned to the Assault Detail began to follow-up the initial information. Through the collaborative work of officers from North Precinct, East Precinct, the Drugs and Vice Division, and the Transit Police Division, and the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office, detectives were able to identify Quincy Wynn as the suspect and present the case to a Multnomah County Grand Jury.
Wynn was booked into the Multnomah County Jail. Bail is set at $755,000.
