Police say a Hermiston man crashed a stolen car several times before robbing and assaulting a woman.
Cody Stackhouse, 26, allegedly stole two cars, driving one of them into Hermiston and crashing it into parked cars, police said.
Stackhouse then assaulted a 43-year-old woman and tried to steal her car, police said. He was arrested a short time later by Umatilla County deputy sheriff.
Stackhouse was arrested on suspicion of third-degree robbery, DUI, five counts of failure to perform duties of a driver, reckless driving, unlawful entry to a motor vehicle and possession of a stolen vehicle.
Damage to the cars is estimated to be thousands of dollars.
Stackhouse is being held at the Umatilla County jail.
