Deputies have identified the man they say slammed into a car and took off near Milwaukie and then did the same thing again a little later to the same car.
Investigators are asking for your help tracking down Jahi Rashid McKinney Brown, 22, last known to live in southeast Portland.
Deputies said Brown crashed into the rear end of a car at the intersection of Highway 224 and Southeast Johnson Road at 2 p.m. Oct. 31.
The victim's car was driven by Ciprian Gusetu, 35, of Milwaukie. His wife Corina Gusetu, 27, was also in the car. She is eight months pregnant.
Investigators said Brown stopped after the crash, picked up his license plate that had broken off and then got back into his car and drove off into oncoming traffic. The victim and a witness followed him.
