No charges against woman who fell between walls

PORTLAND, Ore. -- The woman who spent four hours wedged between the walls of two buildings in downtown Portland will not be charged with a crime.
Portland police Sgt. Pete Simpson said Friday that detectives investigated a lead that Anita Mann, 30, was a graffiti artist trying to deface one of the buildings early Wednesday, but there were no marks on the property and no paint cans at the scene.
Detectives also checked into whether Anita Mann is the woman's real name. It is.
It's still unknown what the woman was doing on the building at 3:45 a.m. and how she fell into a space 8 inches wide.
Firefighters cut a hole through concrete and used an air bag and a soapy lubricant to free her.
