EDINBURGH IN Dec 20 2010 — A security officer was injured during a shoplifting incident Saturday afternoon at Edinburgh Premium Outlets, according to police.
Deputy Chief David Lutz of Edinburgh Police Department said a private security officer who they have not yet named, was injured trying to stop a theft in progress at one of the outlet mall stores.
As the suspect attempted to drive off in a truck, somehow the security officer got tangled with the vehicle and was dragged about 40 feet, Lutz said.
The security officer sustained numerous injuries and was taken to an area hospital but his condition is not currently known.
Police are still looking for the driver of the vehicle.
The security guard, identified as Juan Trevino, 41, is scheduled to appear in court this morning.
Investigators said the incident began about 5:20 a.m. as three people in a vehicle were returning from an after-hours club. One of the men and his girlfriend began arguing, and the man struck the woman in the face, police said.
Investigators said the woman, who was driving, pulled into an apartment complex in the 6400 block of Westward and asked Trevino to call police.
The man and Trevino then began to argue, which led to a fight between the two and the other man in the car. Police said that as the man and his friend began to walk away, Trevino fired once, killing the man, whose identity was not released.
No further information was immediately available.
Portland OR Dec 20 2010 A woman who claimed she was raped by a campus security guard in 2006 while attending a summer conference at Reed College has settled her lawsuit for $145,000.
The woman sued the college and the guard, Noble Powell, for $5.6 million in June 2008. According to the suit, the woman, who was visiting for Tin House Magazine’s writers conference, was severely drunk when she fell and hurt herself on a path behind the student union at 8:50 p.m. on July 10, 2006. Two other women called campus security, and Powell arrived with another guard to escort the woman to her dorm room.
The security guards reportedly said they would check throughout the night on the welfare of the woman, who had been slurring her speech to the point she was incomprehensible.
At 11:45 p.m., two women who were sharing the dorm saw Powell sitting next to the drunk woman, who was in bed. Powell had one of his hands underneath the covers, the suit stated. Sometime after midnight, another woman discovered Powell having sexual intercourse with the woman, the suit claimed. Police didn’t arrest Powell after he denied the rape and the woman told police “she may have given consent,” according to the suit. The suit, however, stated that the woman wasn’t able to and didn’t agree to the sex.
At the time the lawsuit was filed, Powell no longer worked for Reed.
The college, Powell and the woman agreed to a settlement in June 2009, but its terms were confidential. However, the agreement became public Thursday when an insurance carrier for Reed College, College Liability Insurance Co., filed suit in Multnomah County Circuit Court against Hartford Casualty Insurance Co.
College Liability Insurance claims that Hartford Insurance had insured Tin House’s writers conference and as a result should have paid to defend Reed and settle its case.
College Liability Insurance seeks almost $200,000, for the $127,000 it spent defending Reed College and the $72,500 it paid to settle Reed’s portion of the case.
