Both male subjects were gone prior to the arrival of the officers.
Mr. Jacob's estranged wife was unharmed in the attack; the victim sought medical attention at an unnamed hospital. His injuries were not life threatening.
Mr. Jacobs was arrested in his Milwaukie home and lodged at the Clackamas County Jail on Burglary 1, Assault 2, and Criminal Trespass with a Firearm, Criminal Mischief 1, Menacing, Harassment, Criminal Mischief 2, and Reckless Endangering in lieu of $344,500.00 bail.
"This is a very alarming case" said Sgt. Neil Hennelly "We are very lucky no one was killed here."
"A worthy note here is that we did not received calls from any of the neighboring homes in this apartment complex" said Sgt. Hennelly. "In West Linn we receive numerous calls for barking dogs and fireworks, but nobody called on this domestic disturbance that spread into the street in front of the apartment just after midnight."
