Fleeing man ‘drops in’ on Parkrose Lingerie Modeling parlor

Take a look, and you’ll see why the suspect wasn’t killed during his late night escapade …

Portland Police Bureau (PPB) officers swarmed the area of NE 106th Avenue and NE Sandy Boulevard at about 11:00 p.m. on October 3 – as the 9-1-1 Center notified media of an incident that was “Suspicious – with Weapon”.

But, what at first appeared to be another routine call for PPB North Precinct officers in the Parkrose area, turned out to be anything but typical.

It began when a man, who was unknown to the residents, barged into a mobile home. “The suspect fled the mobile home as the resident fired a gun,” said PPB Public Information Officer Sgt. Pete Simpson.

On NE 106th Avenue, just south of NE Sandy Boulevard, officers make sure the suspect can’t double back through the alley.

Inexplicably, when the 5’ 9”, 180 lb suspect fled the mobile home, he clambered onto the roof of a neighboring business. He then scrambled through a roof hatch into the back room of Passionate Dreams Lingerie Modeling on SE Sandy Boulevard.

“The suspect, 30-year-old Trinidad Alatorre, taken into custody in the modeling business,” Simpson said. “He was not injured in the shooting and appeared to be under the influence of alcohol and drugs.”

After receiving medical attention, Alatorre was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center (MCDC) on charges of Criminal Trespass in the First Degree, Criminal Mischief in the Second Degree, and Interfering with a Peace Officer.

After his arraignment in Multnomah County Court on the day he was booked, the judge ordered Alatorre “Released on Own Recognizance”.

It remains unclear if the resident into whose home the accused had gone will be charged in the shooting incident.
