PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — Police have arrested a man who they said may be responsible for several attempted car prowls and an attempted carjacking, officers said.

The investigation started early Friday morning when police got reports of a man trying to break into a vehicle along SE Davis Court and 149th.

The car’s owner, Wang Xiong, said he was awoken when he heard loud banging coming from outside his residence.

Xiong said he looked out his window and saw a man banging on his vehicle, which was parked on the street.

“I said, ‘Hey, what are you doing?’” Xiong said.

The man reportedly reached behind his back and implied he had a gun, police said.

“He said, “Wow! You wanna get shot?’” Xiong said.

The suspect ran through the neighborhood but Xiong followed him in his vehicle.

He eventually flagged down an officer and a large neighborhood search got underway.

Police later learned that the suspect may have been responsible for an attempted carjacking.

Officers found the suspect inside a home near SE 150th and Glisan.

A K-9 unit from Oregon City Police responded and helped with the search.

Officers said a red Ford pick-up parked outside the house where the suspect was found was reported stolen earlier in the night.

The individual has been taken into custody.

They have not released his name, but confirmed they did find a GPS ankle bracelet that had been cut off, which indicates the suspect may have been on parole.

Officers with the Forensic Evidence Division responded to take scene photographs and fingerprints.
