The hunter contacted sheriff’s deputies on Thursday morning, saying he had been attacked and was holding the nude man with a rifle.
According to Oregon Live, authorities could not reach the pair for over 90 minutes due to the thick forest terrain.
Washington County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Bob Ray told Oregon Live the hunter relayed to authorities his attacker spoke of Sasquatch before he hit him over and over with a rock, and strangled him with a piece of clothing.
Linus Norgren, 20, was transported to Tuality Community Hospital for treatment of minor injures and was subsequently jailed, accused of strangulation, menacing, and second-degree assault, according to the report.
The hunter was taken to OHSU Hospital and was treated for his injuries, which were not life threatening, reports Oregon Live.
