A truck driver on I-84 called Oregon State Police Sunday morning when he saw a man in a Jeep Cherokee chasing a woman on foot. Sergeant Pat Shortt says troopers found them just outside the Dalles. “What we found was a 2002 black Jeep Cherokee that had rolled over near the west end of the Dalles. The male, Mr. Reed had been ejected from the vehicle and there was a two year old girl in the vehicle.” It is alleged that Benjamin Franklin Reed, 31, had kidnapped a mother and daughter from the Portland home they shared and forced her to drive east on I-84, stopping once to rape her. At a second stop the woman got of the car and ran. Mother and daughter are okay. Reed is being held on a million dollars bail.
