A local man is in trouble with the law after police say he attempted to steal a car.

Authorities said it all started Tuesday around 11 a.m. when Deshaun Swanger got into a car that was running in a bank parking lot in downtown Milwaukie.

Shortly after sitting in the car, officers say the owner of the car found Swanger and fought him to get him out.

During the struggle, investigators said that Swanger bit the owner of the car and stole his wallet.

Police were called to the scene and arrested Sanger on charges of attempted unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, assault IV and robbery III, along with other charges.

Swanger was lodged at the Clackamas County Jail.
