Police seek woman who was accosted downtown
Police want to find a woman who was allegedly grabbed and pushed by a man early Wednesday morning in a downtown Eugene alley. The man, Garen Daniel Theis, 40, was arrested on charges of second-degree kidnap and second-degree disorderly conduct, police said.
Theis was jailed after the 12:27 a.m. incident in an alley at East Broadway and Oak Street.
Police said a 35-year-old male witness saw Theis grab a woman in her early 20s. The witness helped break them apart, and told police that the woman said she did not know Theis.
The woman left the scene while two more witnesses approached Theis. The men held Theis until officers arrived, police said.
Police are investigating the incident, and hope the woman will contact them to help with the case. Anyone with information about the woman's identity can call police detective Dan Braziel at 682-5836.
Theis was also cited for possessing less than an ounce of marijuana, police said.
