Teen intruders included his granddaughter and others
VANCOUVER — A 66-year-old Vancouver man sustained life-threatening injuries during a home invasion Monday evening. The group of four teens who entered the home included the victim’s granddaughter.
On Monday (Dec. 16) at about 6:19 p.m., Clark County Sheriff’s deputies responded to 2524 NE 83rd Way for a robbery which had just occurred. When deputies arrived, they located a 66-year-old man with significant injuries and stab wounds to his neck.
The male was able to relay to deputies that his granddaughter and two unknown male teens entered his house, assaulted him, and stole his wallet, cell phone, and vehicle. The male was transported to an area hospital with life threatening injuries.
Later that evening, deputies from Clatsop County, Oregon and officers from Seaside Police located the stolen vehicle. A pursuit ensued, which involved Clatsop County Sheriff’s Office, Seaside Police, Cannon Beach Police, Gearhart Police and Oregon State Police.
The vehicle crashed and three of the occupants were taken into custody; and a fourth ran from the crash scene and was taken into custody some time later. One of the juveniles was treated for minor injuries and released back to law enforcement.
The four suspects are juveniles ranging in age 14-17.
