Man Sentenced In Portland Fry Pan Assault

Michael Parker

It’s hard to fight back when you’re six-years old, asleep in your bed, and a stranger enters your room.  He assaults you with a frying pan, cracks your skull.  It happened to a little girl in Portland almost three-years ago.

The attacker, Michael Parker, 29, also assaulted the child’s father during a fight. A judge Monday sentenced Parker to at least seven and a half years in a state mental hospital. The Oregonian reports Parker will be under watch by the Psychiatric Security Review Board for thirty years.

Police say the child’s family didn’t know she was injured until she woke up with a headache.
