Earlier this week, the Lane County Sheriff’s Office received a call of a disorderly person armed with a bow and arrows at a mobile home park in the 82000 block of Davisson Rd. south of Creswell. The caller further stated that the male had put on an army helmet at one point.
The Sheriff’s Office received additional calls from other residents stating that the male was on the roof of a residence, shooting arrows at people. One caller reported that the male yelled that he was going to shoot the property manager. The involved male was identified as 29 year old Jose Deleon.
Deputies arrived on scene and observed Deleon on the roof, now appearing to be unarmed. He refused to communicate with deputies. At one point, he jumped down onto the ground and ran from deputies. He ran for several hundred feet before jumping into a blackberry thicket and eventually giving up. Deleon was taken into custody at which time deputies discovered that he had also been wearing ballistic body armor during the incident.
Deputies located arrows scattered throughout the park consistent with having been recently shot from Deleon. At least one arrow was found stuck into the side of another residence.
Deleon was transported to the Lane County Jail where he was lodged on charges including: Menacing, Criminal Mischief in the 2nd Degree, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Reckless Endangering, Interfering with a Police Officer, Resisting Arrest, Assault in the 4th Degree, Disorderly Conduct in the 1st Degree, Attempted Escape in the 3rd Degree, and Attempted Assault in the 1st Degree.
