PORTLAND – A Portland woman, who police thought was possibly in danger, was found sleeping on a neighbor's porch in Northeast Portland Saturday, police said.
A postal worker found 25-year-old Angie Swartout asleep on the front porch of a home in the 1000 block of Northeast Stafford Street Saturday morning, said Sgt. Pete Simpson with the Portland Police Bureau.
She did not appear to have any injuries but was taken to the hospital to be checked for hypothermia.
Swartout was with a friend at Northwest 12th Avenue and Northwest Everett Street at around 3:30 a.m. when they accepted a ride from a man driving a vehicle that police said resembled a newer model silver Prius.
At 4 a.m. in the area of Northeast 14th Avenue and Northeast Skidmore Street, the friend got out of the car to check street signs. The driver then took off with Swartout passed out in the back seat, Simpson said.
Officers checked Swartout’s home in the 4300 block of Northeast 10th Avenue, but roommates said they hadn’t seen her, Simpson said.
Swartout told police she did not know who the man was that gave her a ride.
