Overnight Standoff With Police Ends In Arrest Of Woodburn Man.

On August 3rd, 2020, at approximately 5:30 pm, deputies were dispatched to a domestic disturbance in the 8100 block of Highway 219 NE, just west of Woodburn.  When deputies arrived they spoke with a 20 year old female who said she had been assaulted by her boyfriend.  Medics were called to the scene and the female was transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.  The suspect had already left the area prior to the deputies arriving at the home.

Deputies returned to the home shortly before 11:30 pm after learning the male had returned.  As deputies prepared to make contact they were told the suspect was inside the residence with a gun, threatening to kill himself.  Deputies helped family members evacuate from the residence until the male could be taken into custody.  After attempts to get the male to come out of the house were unsuccessful, negotiators and SWAT were called to the scene.

While at the residence, deputies continued loud hailing for the male to come outside and SWAT team members delivered a throw phone into the residence in an attempt to get the male to talk with negotiators on scene.  After prolonged efforts to get the male to speak with negotiators and to surrender were unsuccessful, gas munitions were deployed into the residence shortly after 4:00 am.  The suspect came out of the residence a few minutes later and was safely taken into custody.

Raul Scotte Martinez, 19, of Woodburn was taken to Marion County Jail where he will be lodged for Strangulation, Assault IV, Coercion, Theft II, and Robbery III.

During this incident, Highway 219 was closed to traffic between Willow Avenue NE and Butteville Road NE for approximately 4 hours.  The Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the Woodburn Police Department, Woodburn Ambulance, and the Oregon Department of Transportation for their assistance during this incident.
