7 Eleven

The 7-Eleven store at 746 NW Kings Blvd. in Corvallis where three Douglas County men allegedly assaulted a Corvallis woman. The men were arrested Thursday in the Roseburg area and lodged at the Benton County Jail.

Three Douglas County men were arrested Thursday after police said they assaulted a Corvallis woman while shouting homophobic and transphobic slurs.

The Corvallis Police Department began investigating the alleged assault on Oct. 24, when the woman reported being assaulted at the 7-Eleven in the 700 block of Northwest Kings Boulevard in Corvallis. The victim said she was assaulted by three men. Detectives ultimately identified the men and drove to the Roseburg area to make the arrests.

Dylan Guido, 21, of Roseburg, Riley Westbrooks, 21, of Myrtle Creek, and Kyle Rackley, 22, of Sutherlin, were all arrested.

Guido and Westbrooks were arrested on suspicion of committing a first-degree bias crime and third-degree assault. Rackley was arrested on suspicion of third-degree assault. In Oregon, first-degree bias crime is a Class C felony and occurs when a person knowingly, intentionally or recklessly causes physical injury to a victim because of the suspect’s perception of the victim’s race, color, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability or national origin.

Corvallis Police Chief Nick Hurley thanked the Corvallis community for their assistance and for standing up to hate.

“Corvallis PD takes all cases of hate and violence seriously and our officers and detectives have been working on this case since it was reported,” he said. “CPD’s commitment to our community is to conduct professional and impartial investigations recognizing the community’s concern for safety and justice. We extend our thanks to the members of the community who stood up to hate and assisted us in identifying the individuals involved in this case.”

The three Douglas County men were lodged in Benton County Jail and later released.

County's finest, a few rubes, can't handle going up to the big city.

According to the Corvallis Gazette-

On January 1, 2022, a new Oregon law will go into effect that is designed to prevent newspapers like this one from posting mugshots of people who have been arrested. It doesn't take a rocket surgeon to imagine a scenario where, say, the son or daughter of the editor of this newspaper gets arrested on false charges, has his or her mugshot published by a rag, and carries the burden of an internet-available mugshot until the internet is no longer. Or, worse, that young person is harassed (as has been documented), doxed (as has been documented), or blackmailed (which has been documented). Shame on this and other newspapers who engage in shaming people who are still presumed innocent by the justice system simply to generate page views. Even when guilt is conspicuous--as in this story--it is unfair to punish those arrested by publicizing their photos simply for sensational reasons and to entertain readers who have paltry interests, who want someone to hate (and the newspaper gladly gives that person to them, a face to catch their animosity). Let the justice system deal with their punishment--after a guilty verdict from their peers. The details in the stories about arrests are not what gets spread around--the mugshots are. Nevertheless, printing names of those arrested should also be stopped, but that's a rant for another time.

Being able to commit crimes without fear of negative publicity is EXACTLY what crooks want. It is EXACTLY that fear and the following negative consequences of their crime being published that discourages some people from committing crimes.

I disagree with you on this one, Gimpy. But that's a rant for another time. I just wanted to add that Oregon House Bill 3047 was passed into law this June and it makes doxxing an offense.

Members of the Newberg School Board have sued critics using this law. The law is meant to protect people from having private info revealed on-line as a means of harassment. I don't know what the school board is doing because most of the info they are suing over is publicly available. It's possible the new law will be used to stop criticism. It will be interesting to see how it plays out.

My personal opinion: Doxxing is more complicated than right or wrong. Is it wrong to dox someone who's hiding behind anonymity in order to harass or harm others? This often plays out in the dating arena and political arena.

Would it be wrong to dox the person(s) posing as Q, if you had evidence beyond a reasonable doubt? Is that different than Chris Boice doxxing Mike? Is all of that different from protecting the identity of someone posing as a Nice Guy on a dating site who has arrests for harassment? Would it be wrong to dox the Nice Guy if he'd harassed you but wasn't convicted?

Lots of room for ranting on that one.

Were these guys on drugs? What prompted this mayhem anyway?

Gimpy

Really, Wretched? You don't know? Must be very lonely under that rock.

Did this happen? is there something in the way we raise children in Douglas County that tells kids this behavior is appropriate?

Mike

Obviously, because the majority of the people who reacted to this story thought it was "funny." See the above reactions.

According to the Oregonian (below link);

"The woman was working the graveyard shift at a 7-Eleven store several blocks north of the Oregon State campus on Oct. 24 when the trio attacked her...The men fractured her nose, orbital bones, sinus wall and shoulder while yelling transphobic and homophobic slurs...she was hospitalized for two nights."

A GoFundMe (below link) has been set up for Charlotte Osieczanek, the woman attacked to assist with medical bills.

If the names of the three people arrested sound familiar, it’s because they ALL are past area sports stars.

Riley Westbrook is a former South Umpqua High School All-League multi-sports star who also competed last year on the Umpqua Community College baseball team and Obstacle Course Racing team (below links).

Nice. Guess the whole concept of innocent until proven guilty doesn’t apply.

Mike

Who said anything about guilt or innocence? You're the only one whose said anything about guilt.

Thank you for posting that information. A young female, beaten to a pulp while working the graveyard shift at a convenience store, is a person who could use some help.

It's easy to send in ten bucks to a person in need.

Broken bones, especially the orbital, usually makes the crime Assault II. I hope the Benton County DA upgrades the charge. BTW, is this Guido associated with Umpqua Sand and Gravel Guido clan?
