Portland Police say it all started on Tuesday night, June 4th, when a Broadway Cab driver was assaulted and the taxi stolen at Southwest Naito Parkway and Morrison Street.

Detectives say Ronald Heasley is the accused cab robber they’re looking for, and need help finding.

The cab driver told police he was stopped on the Morrison Bridge heading west, when Heasley ran up to the cab, stopped it, jumped in the passenger seat — and began assaulting him. The taxi driver told police he got out of the cab to defend himself, and the suspect took off with his car.

Police say the stolen taxi was recovered a few hours later in Vancouver, Washington.

Ronald Heasley is 42 years old, 5’4″, 170 lbs., and believed to be in the Portland/Vancouver Metro Area.
