The 35-year-old man detained at PCC-Sylvania this morning has been booked into the Multnomah County Jail on domestic violence charges after officers determined there were prior incidents of domestic violence involving the man's girlfriend.

Jacob Rosen was charged with Assault in the Fourth Degree (DV), Harassment (DV) and Menacing (DV) and booked into jail. In addition to the two firearms seized from the trunk of his vehicle, officers seized a rifle and a shotgun (with ammunition) at the residence.

Rosen will be arraigned on Wednesday in Multnomah County Court.



This morning, Tuesday April 15, 2014, North Precinct officers responded to a call at a residence in the 9700 block of North Leonard Street on the report that a suicidal male left the residence, armed with a shotgun, and was possibly driving to school where he is a student at the Portland Community College Sylvania Campus, located at 12000 Southwest 49th Avenue.

Officers obtained information on the 35-year-old man, and vehicle information and relayed it to Central Precinct officers who began checking the area of PCC-Sylvania. Officers also relayed the information to PCC-Sylvania Campus Safety so they too could be on the lookout for the man and his vehicle.

Officers in the area located the man driving his vehicle into the parking lot. Officers stopped the vehicle and took the man into custody without incident. Officers located a shotgun and a handgun in the trunk of the vehicle. Both guns were not loaded and no ammunition was found in the vehicle.

The man was transported to a police facility where the investigation is continuing.

At this point, there is no information that the man was intending on hurting anyone other than himself and it is not believed that there was ever any threat to other students at PCC-Sylvania.
