Keizer, Oregon –
The suspect fled at first, but McNary’s staff were able to identify the student after watching the security footage.
McNary High School
Around 12:00 pm on Wednesday, September 15, the Keizer Police Department (KPD) responded to the reported assault at McNary High School.
According to KPD spokesman Trevor Wenning, a Salem high school student came to campus to confront McNally’s students about despising his girlfriend.
The suspect arrived at the parking lot on the McNally campus at lunch and assaulted the victim in the parking lot. The victim was slightly injured.
“It wasn’t one of these things you got up and went into battle, he came from behind him and attacked him,” said Principal McNally Eric Jespersen.
The incident was witnessed by campus guards. And they disbanded the moment of battle.
“Perhaps within five seconds, one of the campus security officers was there and broke things,” said Jespersen.
The security team had the management team call 911 on the radio. Staff chased the suspect away from the school grounds to a neighborhood near Chemawa Rd. They lost sight of him. Police responded to the area and searched several properties, but could not find any suspects.
“There was one person with the student to see if (the victim) was okay, after which Keizer PD was called from the office,” said Jespersen.
The suspect fled at first, but McNary’s staff were able to identify the student after watching the security footage — McNary installed a new security camera last year thanks to the 2018 Salem-Kaiser Bond project. Did.
“The good thing about our bond is that we have a really good camera and we were able to see the event in the video and screenshots of other students. Within about 30 to 45 minutes. I got all the relevant information about who the students were and where they went to school, so I was able to share it with other school management teams and Keizer PD, “said Jespersen. “He wasn’t on our campus for more than 10 minutes, but it was very easy to figure out who the kid was.”
After a patrol officer conducted an interview and identified the suspect, the case was transferred to the Marion County Juvenile Department for review and disposition. Victims did not want to pursue prosecution.
“We are very grateful for Keizer PD’s very quick response and great partnership,” said Jespersen.
