Oregon State Police, KTVB

ONTARIO, Ore. (AP) ā€” A California man police say forced a commercial truck to a stop in eastern Oregon by ramming its diesel tanks and then stabbed the driver multiple times has been identified.

Oregon State Police in a statement on Tuesday say fingerprints positively identified 28-year-old Dustin Leroy Rotter of Modesto as the man who attacked 63-year-old Charles VanZante of Jerome, Idaho, Monday afternoon on Interstate 84 west of Ontario, Oregon. Rotter is being held in the Malheur County Jail and faces an attempted murder charge as well as other charges.

Authorities say additional charges are pending as the Buick LaCrosse driven by Rotter had been reported stolen in a carjacking on Sunday in Pasco, Washington. VanZante has been discharged from a Boise hospital where he was flown for treatment.
