Arrest made in NE Portland sexual assault and shooting

Gang Detectives arrested 21-year-old Dechavian Jabbar Parks in connection with Thursday morning's sexual assault and shooting.

Parks was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Attempted Murder, Burglary in the First Degree, Rape in the First Degree, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, and Unlawful Use of a Firearm.

Detectives learned that the 18-year-old female victim was asleep in her home where several others, including her mother and boyfriend were sleeping. The suspect, Parks, entered the unlocked home and sexually assaulted the victim. The victim was able to get away and awaken her mother, then both of them ran outside of the home and got into their black SUV. The suspect grabbed onto the SUV and held on as the victim began to drive away. At some point, the suspect let go of the SUV and retrieved a firearm and fired a shot at the SUV, breaking out the back window. The victim and her mother fled to another family member's home then returned to the scene.

The suspect's associates, two juvenile males and an adult female (previously believed to be a male) were not arrested.
