OREGON CITY, Oregon - On January 14, 2021 just before noon, Oregon City Police received a 911 call from a woman reporting being sexually assaulted while standing in the checkout line at the Dollar Tree store. The suspect was immediately confronted by the woman and fled the store on foot. Officers met with the caller and determined a stranger intentionally and maliciously groped her.

Police say they located the suspect in the neighboring area a short time later and a foot pursuit ensued. The chase lasted several blocks, during which the suspect ran along railroad tracks, as well as across all lanes of traffic on Interstate-205 in an attempt to escape. He was ultimately arrested without injury or further incident. 26-year-old Lucas Knight was taken to the Clackamas County Jail and charged with Sexual Abuse III, Criminal Trespass I, and Disorderly Conduct II.

Reference OCPD case #21-000959.
