Update: Additional Details Regarding Friday's Officer-Involved Shooting - 01/18/18

January 18, 2018 -- The inter-agency Washington County Major Crimes Team continues to investigate the fatal officer-involved shooting that occurred north of Sherwood on Friday.

Initial reports to dispatch were that Mr. Sabbe was acting erratically. Witnesses reported hearing shots fired in the area prior to law enforcement arrival. A Sherwood Police officer initially attempted to contact Mr. Sabbe from the roadway, but Mr. Sabbe drove away and crashed his truck into a tree. The Sherwood officer heard gunshots and then saw Mr. Sabbe carrying a rifle.

Tactical responders were called in and first responders set up an expansive perimeter in the interest of public safety. Officers closed the heavily-traveled Southwest Roy Rogers Road and other surrounding arterial streets. Law enforcement attempts to establish phone communication with Mr. Sabbe were unsuccessful.

At approximately 3:30 p.m., members of the inter-agency Tactical Negotiations Team (TNT) attempted to contact Mr. Sabbe in his vehicle. Mr. Sabbe drove away from tactical officers and a Pursuit Intervention Technique (PIT) maneuver was conducted on his vehicle. At one point, Mr. Sabbe started to exit his vehicle with an AR-15 rifle still in his lap.

From inside the truck's cab, Mr. Sabbe turned towards tactical officers and pointed the rifle at them. Tactical officers then fired upon Mr. Sabbe.

TNT members, including embedded tactical combat medics, attempted lifesaving measures, but Mr. Sabbe was pronounced deceased at the scene. A loaded AR-15 rifle was recovered from inside the truck.

The involved personnel who discharged their firearms are being identified as Deputy Earl Brown, who has been employed with the Sheriff's Office since 2008, and Corporal Cade Edwards, employed since 2003.

No additional information is available for release at this time.

Man Arrested on Multiple Charges After Trying to Stab Others at Bar (Photo) - 01/14/18

January 14, 2018 -- A man was arrested on multiple charges after he tried to stab other patrons and security staff at an Aloha bar.

On Sunday, January 14, 2018 at 12:06 a.m., Washington County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to Club Underground at 18641 SW TV Highway in Aloha after multiple 911 callers reported a man armed with a knife causing a disturbance.

When deputies arrived, they found security staff on the floor, struggling with a man armed with a knife. During the struggle, the male swung the knife at others in an attempt to stab them. He suffered a minor cut to his own hand. Ultimately, the man was disarmed and detained.

During their investigation, deputies learned that the altercation started when a man accidentally bumped into another man while entering the restroom. A short time later, when the male left the restroom, the other male flashed some hand signals and produced a knife.

Security staff immediately intervened and several patrons called 911. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured.

Deputies arrested Jonathan Lemarroy, 39, of Hillsboro, and charged him with assault in the second degree, riot, menacing, felon in possession of a weapon, disorderly conduct in the second degree, unlawful use of a weapon and parole violation. His bail is set at $250,000.

Man Defends Himself and Dogs from Aggressive Pit Bull (Photo) - 01/13/18

January 13, 2018 -- This morning, a man was walking his dogs when he and the dogs were confronted by an aggressive pit bull. The man defended himself and his dogs by stabbing the at-large animal. The pit bull later succumbed to its injuries at a veterinary clinic. The owner of the pit bull is unknown.

On Saturday, January 13, 2018, at 7:32 a.m., Washington County Sheriff's Office deputies assigned to the City of Cornelius responded to a report of a male attacking a dog in the 400 block of N 10th Avenue, near the railroad tracks.

When deputies arrived, they learned that a resident was out walking his two dogs when an aggressive adult male pit bull confronted them and attacked one of the leashed dogs. The pit bull caused minor injuries to one of the dogs. The man stabbed the pit bull to protect himself and prevent further harm to his dogs.

Deputies transported the injured pit bull to a local veterinary clinic, where he had to be euthanized.

It is not known at this time who owns the pit bull.

Washington County Code requires dogs to be restrained by leashes, tethers or other physical control device and under the physical control of a capable person, unless the dog is in an enclosed area specifically designated for dogs to be without a leash or on its owner's or keeper's own property.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact deputies at 503-629-0111.

The man who defended himself and his animals is willing to speak to the media. Any interested media outlets should call the PIO number for contact information.

Sheriff's Office Donates Robot to Glencoe High School Students (Photo) - 01/09/18

January 9, 2017 -- The Sheriff's Office Remotely Operated Vehicle Team donated a decommissioned tactical robot to the Glencoe High School robotics team.

In 2006, the Sheriff's Office used grant funds to acquire its first robot- a Mini Andros II by Remotec. It was outfitted with three cameras, two-way communications, and a robotic arm. At the time, use of such technology by local law enforcement was a relatively new and innovative concept.

In 2008, the Sheriff's Office formed the Remotely Operated Vehicle Team (ROVT), which still operates today. Comprised of patrol and jail staff, the team oversees the operation and maintenance of the agency's robots, which has since grown to a total of three.

For nearly a decade, the Mini Andros II was deployed on dozens of tactical callouts around Washington County. The robot proved invaluable assisting deputies with entering dangerous areas, opening doors, removing weapons, and other tasks that would otherwise put human lives at risk. The ROVT also showcased the robot at countless community safety fairs.

Over the years, robotics technology has drastically improved and replacement parts for the Mini Andros II have become scarce. Last year, ROVT members began looking into decommissioning options and reached out to coaches from Glencoe High School's robotics team, named "Team Shockwave." The two groups had met the year prior at a robotics convention. Earlier this evening, members from the ROVT donated the Mini Andros II to Team Shockwave, who will use its parts for future projects.

"The Mini Andros II has been an essential part of our operation throughout its many years of service," said ROVT Sergeant Mark Trost. "This unit has in part saved lives during various missions during its lifecycle. Our team is excited to see that it can continue to be of value to our community and as an educational tool for local students."

The Sheriff's Office and Hillsboro Police Department had help from the Westside Inter-Agency Narcotics and Inter-Agency Gang Enforcement teams, as well as two K-9 teams. They were also assisted by Sheriff's Office detectives from the Violent Crimes Unit and Special Investigations Unit.

The inter-agency Tactical Negotiations Team, the inter-agency Crisis Negotiations Unit, a forensic technician, and an evidence officer assisted during today's search warrant. If you are concerned about a property in your neighborhood, the Sheriff's Office encourages you to call 503-629-0111.

On Friday, December 29, 2017, at 11:14 p.m., a Washington County Sheriff's Office deputy came across an SUV sitting on the side of NW 185th Avenue near NW West Union Rd in the Bethany community.

There was no one in or around the SUV, which belongs to 68-year-old John C. Cross. Deputies learned Mr. Cross has been contacted by police several times over the past two weeks in Beaverton, Tigard and Hillsboro and appeared to be disoriented or confused.

Pedestrian Severely Injured During Two-Car Crash

July 30, 2017-- A two-vehicle crash ended when an uninvolved pedestrian was struck on the sidewalk along Highway 99W. The road remains closed at this hour while law enforcement investigates the crash.

On Sunday, July 30, 2017, at 6:33 p.m., Washington County Sheriff's deputies responded to a crash with injuries on Highway 99W near the intersection of SW Fischer Road near the City of Tigard. Two vehicles had collided and one of them came to rest on the sidewalk where 36-year-old Nathaniel Franciosi, from Tualatin, had been walking. He was severely injured when he was struck by the vehicle.

Deputies called in investigators from the Washington County Crash Analysis Reconstruction Team (CART) to investigate the crash. They determined that a 2014 Chevrolet Cruze driven by 58-year-old Michelle Marie McMillan, from Tigard, was traveling south on Highway 99W south of SW Fischer Road. She turned east to cross the northbound lanes in order to enter the Avalon Park Apartment complex.

As she was crossing over the north-bound lanes she was struck by a 2011 Chevy Suburban driven by 71-year-old William Blakeslee, from Sherwood. He was traveling northbound and had the right of way.

The impact sent the suburban onto the sidewalk where it struck Mr. Franciosi. He suffered life-threatening injuries and was transported to Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU).

Ms. McMillan suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to OHSU. Investigators believe she had been drinking alcohol prior to the crash.

The investigation is ongoing and no arrests have been made at this time.

That was at 5:00 p.m., and Mr. Alperin has not been seen since.

Mr. Alperin's family reports that he has recently been experiencing mild cognitive impairment that causes him to become disoriented and confused. Deputies learned that it is unusual for him to be out of communication for this length of time.

Impaired Driver Crashes Into Home, Injures Two Passengers (Photo) - 12/28/17

December 28, 2017 -- An impaired driver crashed into a house in the Cedar Hills community early this morning. Two passengers were transported to a local hospital with injuries.

On December 28, 2017, at 1:37 a.m., Washington County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a single vehicle crash into a residence in the 10700 block of Southwest Walker Road in the Cedar Hills community.

When deputies arrived, they found a silver 2016 Honda Odyssey van with its back end resting on the side of a home just off the roadway.

During the investigation, deputies learned that the Honda was traveling westbound when it left the roadway, struck a tree, spun around and came to rest on the outside of the home.

Deputies observed signs of alcohol impairment from the driver, 21-year-old Ezana Tedros of Manteca, California. Mr. Tedros was arrested on charges of driving under the influence, two counts of assault in the fourth degree, and two counts of criminal mischief in the second degree.

Two passengers in the vehicle, ages 24 and 21, were transported by Metro West Ambulance to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Occupants inside the home were not injured. Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue responded and assisted. A tow truck was called to remove the vehicle from the house.

This holiday season, the Washington County Sheriff's Office has partnered with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for the national "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" enforcement campaign to help keep impaired drivers off the road. The campaign began on December 13 and runs through the New Year.
