PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A Salem man was arrested Monday after prompting a SWAT response to his apartment.
Eduardo Espinoza Lopez ran down the stairs of Salem’s Cedar Court Apartment complex holding a knife, according to witnesses. Police said neighbors were able to get inside their units uninjured before Lopez, 34, approached anyone with the weapon.
When deputies from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office arrived around 6 p.m., Lopez barricaded himself inside his unit. SWAT was eventually called to the scene along with negotiators.
Shortly before 9:30 p.m., Lopez exited the apartment without incident and was taken into custody.
He has been booked at the Marion County Jail where he faces Attempted Assault 2, Unlawful Use of a Weapon and Menacing.
