ALSEA, Ore. — Two men are in jail, accused of assaulting a 3-year-old boy.
The Benton County Sheriff’s Office arrested Mike Yarnell and Michael Saiville Sunday night in Alsea. They say the men put Saiville’s 3-year-old son in a timeout and they also restrained the boy. They’re continuing to investigate what happened.
“How long the child was detained for – or in a timeout. We’ve had some stories about how long the detention was and how he was detained – the method that was used on him,” said Capt. Greg Ridler, Benton Co. Sheriff’s Office.
The sheriff’s office says it responded to a higher number of assault and domestic violence cases this weekend, which they say is typical during the holidays.
