Not a Sasquatch

According to front page of the West End News' latest issue, a woman had a very strange attack occur in her apartment back in July, not unlike one of the events in that bigfoot camp classic, Legend of Boggy Creek. No word on how hairy the guy's paw was.
Woman Grabbed Through Window

Police report that a man reached in an open apartment window on Dow Street in the West End and grabbed the arms of a woman who was trying to close the window.

Police say that the woman was asleep at about 3AM on July 15th when she was awakened by someone ringing the front doorbell. She answered the door, but there was no one there. She returned to her bedroom and was grabbed by the arms when she tried to close the window.

She told police that she screamed, but that she thought it was a practical joke. She called a friend to stay with her that night, but did not report the incident until several days later. She was not able to provide a description of the man, and no arrests have been made.
Easily the weirdest Portland crime of late.
