Portland man arrested in Prineville, Portland rapes after car chase
by Bend Weekly News Sources

PRINEVILLE, Ore. – A convicted rapist wanted by the Portland Police Bureau for an alleged sexual assault on Tuesday, and sought by Prineville Police for an alleged rape Thursday, was arrested after running from a crashed stolen car following two attempts to elude in a high-speed pursuit, police reported.

Jackie Eugene Weeks, 47, of Portland, fled to the Portland Metro area immediately after the alleged rape of a 20-year-old Prineville woman in her home, Prineville Police Chief Eric Bush wrote in a news release.

According to Oregon State Police (OSP), a trooper spotted the stolen vehicle, a Ford Probe, traveling west on Highway 26 about five miles east of Sandy about 1:40 p.m. After eluding police, Weeks was spotted again shortly after 2 p.m. by an OSP sergeant and two Clackamas County Sheriff’s deputies. A second attempt to elude police ended when the vehicle crashed into heavy brush and trees on a private driveway near Corbett, troopers reported.

Weeks made one final attempt to flee when he ran a short distance before he was ultimately taken into custody, the news release stated. He was treated on scene for minor injuries received in the crash.

Weeks reportedly was released from prison in July 2007 after serving six years for rape.

Investigations by the Portland Police Bureau and Prineville Police are continuing.
