PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A Washington mother and daughter are safe after a reported assault on Friday night escalated to a standoff with a state SWAT team Saturday.

Clark County Sheriff’s deputies were called out to a report of an assault on Friday, October 4. A mother and daughter told authorities that the mother’s boyfriend had pointed a gun at them and threatened to kill them. Both victims were able to leave the home and get to a safe location last night.

Authorities tried to find the boyfriend, but were unable to until Saturday morning, when one of the victims called 911 again around 10:30 a.m. saying that the boyfriend had come back to the house where they all lived together.

Patrol deputies helped the victims safely escape the home again Saturday morning. However, the boyfriend remained inside. CCSO said due to the violent nature of the situation, the Southwest Washington Regional SWAT team was called out to the scene. From the outside of the home, SWAT attempted to talk to the suspect in what developed into a 3-hour standoff.

Just after 1:30 p.m. authorities got a search warrant and went inside the Clark County home to arrest the suspect.

The sheriff’s office has identified that man as Jorge Delgado-Perez . He was taken to the Clark County Jail where he was charged with multiple counts of assault for domestic violence using a gun and felony harassment.
