Woman Pushed Into Street, Breaks Wrist


A man is under arrest after pushing a 67-year-old woman into traffic. It happened Thursday afternoon near Southeast 36th and Hawthorne.

Cars braked to avoid hitting the woman. She broke her wrist falling into the street.

The suspect also tried to light a power pole on fire, threw trash cans into the street and tried to grab passing cars.

39-year-old Kenneth Church, of Portland, bit officers as they arrested them and tried to break one of the officer's fingers. He faces charges of assault along with several other charges.
