Columbia County sheriff’s deputies Tuesday arrested a St. Helens, Ore., man suspected of imprisoning and assaulting a woman at his residence for multiple days, according to a release from the sheriff’s office.
Deputies were alerted to the assaults by the woman during a minor traffic stop. They responded to a home in the 31500 block of Dowd Road where the suspect, 32-year-old Chad Michael Haderly, had barricaded himself inside.
Deputies observed a large amount of blood on the front deck and the victim’s cell phone, which appeared to have been cut in half, according to the release. After Haderly refused to come to the door when hailed by deputies with a PA system, the homeowner arrived and gave investigators permission to break a window to enter the home.
Haderly was located in a bathtub and arrested. He was booked on $301,250 bail at Columbia County Jail on suspicion of a raft of charges: Attempted murder, first-degree kidnapping, strangulation, menacing, second-degree assault, coercion, first-degree criminal mistreatment, interfering with making a report, unlawful use of a weapon, first- and second-degree burglary, first-degree aggravated theft, first- and second-degree theft, and a felony Oregon warrant.
