Portland Police say an app on a stolen I-Phone helped them solve both a sexual assault and a robbery.
Sergeant Pete Simpson says the app led officers to the general location of the phone, a house on the 4700 block of North Kerby. There, officers developed leads that tied one suspect, Alex Sebastion, (pictured above) to both the rape and the robbery.
Simpson encourages anyone with a smartphone to activate and learn how to use apps like Find My iPhone. He says, besides helping find missing phones, such apps could help rescuers find you in the event of a crash. Or, they might even help get dangerous people off the streets.
