Corvallis Police Arrest Man in Reported Robbery at Subway Restaurant - 08/24/15
On August 23, 2015, at approximately 9:47 p.m. Corvallis Police Officers were dispatched to the Subway restaurant at 5080 SW Philomath Blvd for a report of a robbery which had just occurred. The suspect, later identified as 25 year old Aaron Robert Wagner of Corvallis, entered the business and demanded the clerk provide him with the money in the register. Wagner did not display or indicate that he had a weapon.

The clerk complied and provided Wagner with the money. Approximately an hour later, as an officer was clearing from the scene, he observed a taxi leaving the area from a side street near the scene. The officer followed the taxi to determine whether the suspect was inside and witnessed it stop and the driver attempt to remove the passenger from the car. The passenger matched the suspect description of the Subway suspect and the officer attempted to detain him. Wagner physically resisted and charged at the officer. The officer deployed a Taser and Wagner was taken into custody.

Medics were dispatched to the scene to remove the Taser probes and Wagner assaulted one of the medics, striking him with his knee.

Neither Wagner, nor the Corvallis Fire Medic sustained serious injuries.

WAGNER was charged with the following crimes:

-Burglary 2nd Degree
-Interfering with a Peace Officer
-Resisting Arrest
-Theft 2nd Degree
-Criminal Trespass 2nd Degree
-Attempted Assault 3
-Theft of Services

Wagner was charged with Burglary in the 2nd degree instead of Robbery because he never displayed, or told the clerk he was armed with a weapon. Wagner was transported to the Benton County Jail where he was lodged on $216,000 bail.

Corvallis Police Semi-Nude Male for Trespass and Disorderly Conduct - 08/03/15
On August 1, 2015, shortly after 8:45am, Corvallis Police responded to a 911 call in the 400 block of NW 11th St. from a female resident reporting a male with no pants or underwear was attempting to gain entry to her residence. When police arrived they located 25 year old Hyun Jae Kim of Corvallis in the rear of the residence. He was only wearing a shirt at the time police located him.

According to the caller, Kim initially came to the front door of the residence and knocked loudly on the door and trying to open the door via the door knob. The door was locked and he was unable to gain entry. While on the front porch, Kim removed his pants and underwear. He then went to the back of the residence and knocked on the back door. He again tried to open the back door, but it too was locked. Fearful of the individual trying to gain entry, she called 911.

Kim stated that he was trying to contact a friend, but the address he gave for the friend was not near the address he was currently at. Kim appeared to be under the influence of alcohol and or another substance based on the behaviors observed by officers on scene. His pants were located on the front porch of the residence, and were wet, which is possibly why they were removed.

Kim was arrested for one count of Trespass in the Second Degree, one count of Disorderly Conduct and two arrest warrants out of Benton County for Burglary and Theft. He was transported to the Benton County Jail and lodged on $561,000 bail.
