Attempted murder suspect escapes Portland police building

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Authorities are searching for an attempted murder suspect who escaped from a temporary holding cell and ran out of police headquarters in downtown Portland. The Oregonian reports 24-year-old David Dahlen was arrested Saturday on suspicion of ramming a stolen pickup into an officer on Christmas Eve, fracturing her pelvis. He escaped from a locking room at the Police Bureau’s detective division while awaiting questioning. A police spokesman says officers have not yet figured out how Dahlen escaped but described it as “unprecedented” in the bureau’s recent history. Police did not provide an update Sunday morning.
