[ARCHIVED] SCU Arrests Suspect After Road Rage Incident

Abrham Johns Acuna

On July 30, 2019, at approximately 6:45 p.m., the Street Crimes Unit and K9 Cwyk and his officer handler responded to the apartment of a suspect who was identified to have been involved in a domestic road-rage incident that happened earlier in the day on Beltline around 1:30 p.m. 

The team established a perimeter around the residence, and contacted the suspect, Abrham Johns Acuna, age 26, who was inside. SCU hailed Acuna to come out and Acuna was informed that he had several warrants for arrest. After repeated attempts to get him to exit the residence, he was informed that a K9 would enter and assist with locating and taking him into custody. 

A short time later, the team observed Acuna exiting the back side of the residence and he was taken into custody with the assistance of K9 Cwyk. He was arrested without incident on warrants for Felon in Possession of Firearm, Harassment, Possession Controlled Substance Methamphetamine, Menacing, DUII, and transported to the Lane County Jail.

The SCU has been focusing on prolific offenders, who are identified through intelligence-based policing, public tips and other sources. They have been proactively responding across the city to quality of life issues as they arise, using all available resources and partners such as community groups, neighborhood associations and city services. 

 

The unit makes a dynamic difference in a variety of public safety issues including on emerging crimes and neighborhood livability issues. This team creates capacity within the organization to address and solve problems throughout the city of Eugene. SCU is a tangible outcome of the one-time,18-month bridge funding by Eugene City Council that is dedicated to targeting immediate and acute community safety system issues while working toward mission-critical enhancements that need to be addressed through a longer-term and broader community safety initiative. The unit currently consists of a lieutenant, a sergeant and eight officers. The team will also include another sergeant in the near future.
