Bias Suspect Arrested After Missing Court Appearance

(Portland, OR)  --  The suspect in an alleged bias crime assault last Saturday on Portland's Eastbank Esplanade has been arrested for failing to show up at a court appearance. The judge issued a warrant for Dylan Kesteron's arrest. An off-duty Portland Police officer saw Kesterson near Southwest 3rd and Jefferson Street. He called two uniformed officers who were nearby at the Multnomah County Courthouse, and they arrested Kesterson. He is accused of hitting a man he perceived to be of Japanese descent several times in the head while yelling racial slurs. He also hit the victim's 5-year-old daughter on the bike helmet she was wearing. The man went to a hospital for treatment. Kesterson was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center.
