Police Asking for Help in Locating Dangerous Suspect

The Portland Police Bureau is asking for the public’s help in locating a dangerous suspect.

The suspect in this case is identified as 33-year-old Jacob Matthew Ray Anderson. Anderson is wanted for his dangerous actions on July 24, 2022, when he hit a Portland Police officer while fleeing in a stolen vehicle. The officer sustained serious injuries and was transported to a local hospital for surgery.

In addition to being wanted in Multnomah County, Jacob Anderson has warrants out of Benton County, Lincoln County, and Clackamas County. Anderson is the suspect in other Portland cases, and was able to be identified as the suspect in this case due to Bureau members’ interactions with him.

Anderson’s most recent arrest by the Portland Police Bureau occurred on June 29, 2022. East Precinct officers were dispatched to a crash in the 2300 Block of Southeast 157th Street. Officers arrived to find Jacob Anderson inside a vehicle that crashed into another vehicle, and then a tree. Anderson was unresponsive after officers’ attempts at rousing him. Anderson regained consciousness after Portland Fire and AMR units administered aid.

Anderson was transported to the hospital due to the condition he was found in. Officers cited Anderson for Driving Under the Influence (Controlled Substance), Reckless Endangering, Reckless Driving, Possession of a Controlled Substance, and Felon in Possession of a Firearm. 

Jacob Anderson is 5’9” tall and has a slim build, weighing approximately 160 lbs. He was last seen with wavy brown hair around 2”-3” long, but has been known to change his appearance by shaving his head. Anderson has a mole on his left cheek.

Anyone who sees Jacob Anderson is asked to immediately call 911.
