[ARCHIVED] Police Respond to Dispute/Barricaded Suspect

Last night, on October 09, 2018, around 10:23 p.m. Eugene Police responded to 1890 Potter Alley for a dispute between a boyfriend and girlfriend in which the boyfriend was reported to be choking the girlfriend. Multiple Eugene Police officers responded to the scene and surrounded the residence involved. As officers arrived, the victim was able to self-evacuate herself from the residence safely to awaiting officers. The male suspect,Jeremy Jay Davis, age 43, briefly showed himself, and was confrontational with officers, then quickly retreated back into the residence and barricaded himself inside. Officers began to attempt multiple ways to communicate with Davis and have him come out peacefully. He was non-responsive and did not follow lawful orders. Police wrote and obtained a search warrant for the residence and suspect. Due to the inherent dangers of this barricaded suspect, Eugene Police SWAT was activated and responded to the scene. Area residents affected by this incident were advised to shelter in place during the evolving incident. EPD spent several hours hailing Davis unsuccessfully. Eventually a distraction device was deployed and Davis contacted officers at the front of the residence. However, he was not complying with lawful commands and presented a threat to officers. Police deployed less lethal options to safely take Davis into custody. Davis sustained minor bruising to his leg and police called Eugene Fire and EMS to the scene to check the suspect. Davis was later lodged at Lane County Jail on charges of Assault in the Fourth Degree APA (Abuse Prevention Act) and Strangulation APA. The victim sustained non-life threatening injuries during the dispute with Davis. EPD was assisted by Lane County Sheriffs and University of Oregon Police Departments.
