Witness Helps Police Catch Hit And Run Suspect

A witness helped police catch a hit and run suspect Sunday afternoon in Clackamas.

The hit and run happened in the 7-Eleven parking lot near the intersection of SE 82nd Ave. and SE Otty Street.

While deputies were responding, they were informed that a citizen had followed the suspect vehicle into the Babies R Us parking lot.  Several deputies responded to the 9650 SE 82nd Ave. location where they were able to detain Leslie Meyer, 65 year old male from Milwaukie. 

Deputies who responded to 7-Eleven found 38-year-old Jason Shwartz, from Portland, with serious injuries.  Schwartz was treated on the scene and then transported to a local hospital.  His condition hasn't been released.

Clackamas County CSI, CRAFT (Criminal Reconstruction and Forensic Technicians), and detectives responded and are conducting an investigation.  Investigators were able to determine that Meyer struck Shwartz multiple times with his vehicle and then fled the scene.

Meyer was arrested and booked into the Clackamas County Jail on charges of Assault I, Hit and Run Injury, and a valid warrant for Hit and Run Property.  Meyer is being held on $265,000 bail.
