(CORVALLIS, Ore.) - Corvallis police arrested a Corvallis man Tuesday night, for assaulting a former female co-worker at her home with a knife.
Corvallis police responded to the victims apartment in the 600 block of NW 18 street just after 10:00 PM.
An investigation revealed that 52-year-old Brian Shire entered the victims apartment through an unlocked front door.
After entering her apartment, Shire was told to leave but refused. He became increasingly more aggressive toward the victim and retrieved a knife from her kitchen. Twice, Shire pulled the knife across the victim's throat causing superficial abrasions. Shire also threw the victim to the ground and repeatedly kicked her. None of the victim's injuries required medical attention. After the attack, the victim was able to escape her apartment while Shire was in another room. She ran to a neighbor's residence and called 9-1-1.
Responding officers located Shire inside the victim's residence and he was arrested without incident.
Shire was transported to the Benton County Correctional Facility. He is charged with First-Degree Burglary, Second Degree Assault, Menacing, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, and Harassment.
