PORTLAND - The Portland Police Bureau, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers of Oregon, is asking for the public's help to solve a hit-and-run that killed a man in North Portland.
On August 30, 2016, at approximately 8:48 p.m., North Precinct and Traffic Division officers responded to the report of a hit and run to a pedestrian.
Officers and medical personnel arrived and located the victim, 65-year-old Stanley Henry Grochowski, suffering from several injuries. Grochowski was transported by ambulance to a Portland hospital for treatment.
On September 9, 2016, Grochowski died as a result of his injuries.
