A 47-year old sexual assault suspect wanted by Portland Police Bureau was arrested Thursday afternoon following two separate attempts to elude of State and county police officers in Clackamas and Multnomah counties.
 
On August 21, 2008 at approximately 1:40 p.m. an Oregon State Police (OSP) senior trooper spotted a vehicle believed to be occupied by JACKIE EUGENE WEEKS, age 47, westbound on Highway 26 about five miles east of Sandy. The Ford Probe two-door driven by WEEKS eluded the trooper in the Sandy area. It was spotted again about 2:07 p.m. by an OSP sergeant and two Clackamas County (CCSO) deputies on SE Bluff Road near SE Orient Drive where it again initiated attempts to elude the officers going northbound on SE 302nd Avenue to Old Highway 30 into Corbett until crashing into heavy brush and trees on a private driveway at 130 SE Pounder Road.
 
WEEKS was slightly injured in the crash and was taken into custody by OSP and CCSO at about 2:20 p.m. Additional OSP, Clackamas and Multnomah County deputies were arriving on scene to assist when he was being arrested.
 
WEEKS was treated at the scene by medical personnel before being transported by OSP to the Portland Police Bureau Detective Division.
 
According to Prineville Police Department, on August 20th local law enforcement officials received information WEEKS possibly was in the Prineville area and began searching for him.  On August 21st at 11:38 a.m. a 20-year old woman came to their department and reported she had been forcibly raped in her home by a stranger.  WEEKS was later identified as the suspect in their case.
