Car theft suspect bit by K-9 after police chase in Boring

Posted: Updated:

A K-9 bit a suspect accused of driving a stolen car and leading deputies on a chase in Clackamas County on Friday.

It started at 10:50 a.m. near Highway 212 and Highway 26. A deputy attempted to stop a 1999 white Volkswagen Passat after seeing the driver wasn't wearing a seatbelt.

Deputies said the driver sped off, before pulling into a driveway near Southeast Waybill Road and Orient Drive in Boring.

The driver and two passengers then got out and ran away, according to investigators. Officers from a number of agencies searched the area.

Deputies said a K-9 found the driver, Trevor Freauff, 22, of Clackamas and bit him after the suspect refused to comply with commands.

Freauff is being treated for dog bite wounds at a local hospital and will be transported to jail once released. He is facing charges including unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, reckless driving and reckless endangering.

The car was reported stolen out of southeast Portland on Dec. 12.

One passenger was also arrested. Joshua Biggs, 25, of Portland faces one charge now, with more potential charges as the investigation continues.

Deputies are trying to track down the second passenger. He has been tentatively identified as Christopher Freauff, 27, of Clackamas.

He is a white man, 5'11" with a thin build and brown hair. He was wearing all dark clothing.
