Roseburg Police Utilize Emergency Response Team During Domestic Assault Case

Roseburg Police Dept. 

On March 21, 2020 at 8:52 PM, Roseburg Police were dispatched to the area of SE Ella and SE Court Avenue for a report of a disturbance involving a female screaming to call the police.  Officers received additional information leading them to believe a female may have been assaulted at a residence on SE Ella Street.  Officers approached the residence and located signs of a disturbance but could not get anyone to come to the door.  Witnesses informed officers on scene that a physical disturbance was heard as well as screaming just prior to officers’ arrival leading officers to believe people were still inside the residence.

Officers exhausted all avenues of attempted contact with residents over about a two hour period leading to a call out of Emergency Response Team members.  Roseburg Police and Douglas County Sheriff’s Office members formed an entry team and breached the front door in an attempt to render aid to anyone inside who may be injured or otherwise need assistance.  Upon entry, a 51 year old Roseburg man and 48 year old Roseburg woman emerged from the residence.

The subsequent investigation revealed the female sustained physical injury during an alleged assault by the male.  The male was arrested for Domestic Assault in the Fourth Degree and booked at the Douglas County Jail.

The Roseburg Police Department would like to thank the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office for their assistance with this incident.
