PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Timothy Beasley, who brutally and repeatedly stabbed a woman about 2 blocks from Sunnyside Elementary, will spend the next 15 years in prison.
The woman was attacked around 3 a.m. on June 26, 2017 in the 3300 block of SE 33rd Avenue and Taylor. She was at the Belmont Inn and was talking outside with Beasley, who she knew was a security guard at the Belmont Inn.
Beasley, 36, wasn’t working that night but was there anyway, the DA’s office said Friday. He and the woman began walking toward a park when she said Beasley began hitting her head into the sidewalk.
A nearby resident heard what he said sounded like an “animal fight” on the sidewalk, yelled and saw Beasley run away. Other people then came to help the wounded woman.
The woman had been stabbed at least 20 times and had injuries on her face, head, neck and upper body. Investigators also found a broken wine bottle near her and other evidence that connected Beasley to this crime.
Investigators also found blood droplets along the path Beasley ran plus more blood droplets when they searched his home.
He pleaded no contest to attempted murder and robbery.
“This case did involve brutality that I don’t see in all my cases so that is very concerning and deserving of a significant sentence,” Multnomah County Circuit Court Judge Karin Immergut said.
Beasley, who did not speak in court, was ordered to pay $8512 in restitution and will be on 3 years of supervision once he’s released from prison.
