OREGON CITY, Ore. - Police are searching for a man who tailed a woman and harassed her, claiming he was with the sheriff's office.
It all started around 5:30 a.m. Sunday when a woman was driving to her work at a rest home in Oregon City. She was headed there from Estacada.
When she reached the intersection of Highway 211 and Highway 213, she noticed a pickup truck parked in a median, like an officer would do if they were using radar to catch speeders.
She told police the truck's driver pulled out and following her closely with the bright headlights on. She pulled over and the truck passed her, but it wasn't long until she saw the same truck pulled over on the side of the road and once again the driver pulled out behind her.
The woman continued on, but said when she pulled into work, the truck followed her in. She said once she got out of her vehicle, a man got out of the truck.
The woman told police that the man claimed he was with the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office. She said he told her he was doing a survey on people's safety and that she had done well, but was driving too fast.
The woman was highly suspicious and when the man pulled out a handgun, she ran for the front door of her work. She told police she heard a click as she was running.
She was shaken over what happened and was unable to provide a good description of the suspect for a sketch artist. The man was a white male about six feet tall and he was driving a small pickup truck that was either black or red.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Oregon City Police Department.
