Police Search for Assault Suspect

1-27 assault picEUGENE, Ore. — The Eugene Police Department was searching for a man who took off on foot after a fight with his girlfriend Monday morning.

Police got the call a little after 2 a.m. after a neighbor called in, saying she could hear a woman screaming. Once police got to the apartment near 14th and Bailey Hill Rd., the man was nowhere to be found.

Officers were searching the area around the apartment and say while he could be armed, it doesn’t appear he’s a danger to the community.

“We know who he is, we know where he lives, and it’s a domestic dispute. It doesn’t appear that the public would be in any danger at this point,” says Sgt. Wayne Dorman with the Eugene Police Department.

The woman had minor injuries and was not transported to the hospital.
