HILLSBORO, Ore. — Washington County authorities say a naked man was arrested after attacking a hunter south of U.S. 26 near Manning.
Sheriff’s Sgt. Bob Ray says the hunter sustained head and shoulder injuries, but managed to hold his attacker at gunpoint until deputies arrived.
Ray told The Oregonian the incident started Thursday morning when the hunter noticed the naked man trying to damage his all-terrain vehicle.
According to Ray, the man then jumped on the hunter, struck him with a rock and tried to choke him. The hunter grabbed his rifle when the naked man stopped attacking.
The hunter was taken by ambulance to OHSU Hospital. The suspect was taken to Washington County Jail after receiving treatment for a broken finger.
