Seatbelt Prevents Carjacking In Northeast Portland

(Portland, OR) -- Police say a seatbelt helped prevent a carjacking in Northeast Portland Monday night. The incident started when police performed a welfare check on two people who appeared to be passed out in a car that was running in a parking lot. Police say the driver woke up and eventually ran from the scene and tried to carjack a nearby vehicle, but he was unable to get the driver out of the car because they were wearing a seatbelt. The suspect then broke into a house and tried to hide in the attic, but a K-9 found 35-year-old Nathan Cutfinger, and he was taken into custody.
