PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- An armed man arrested near a Portland middle school had an arsenal of weapons at home, including semi-automatic firearms and tactical gear, police said.
The Portland Police Bureau said officers carried out a search warrant on Jonathan D. Messare's home in the 2900 block of Southeast Division Street after officials learned Messare had violated a restraining order.
During the search, officers said they found an AR15, a shotgun, a semi-automatic handgun and a .38 revolver, as well as ammunition and tactical gear.
The search on Thursday came a day after Messare was arrested on charges of assault and resisting arrest.
Portland police said multiple people called to report a person who was yelling and taking his clothes off near Hosford Middle School.
Officers said Messare was armed with a hatchet and a knife and charged at police. As officers arrested him, he stabbed a sergeant in the hand.
More charges were leveled against Messare following the discovery of the weapons cache, including unlawful possession of a firearm and violation of a restraining order.
"This is a great example of the dedication and collaboration between PPB's investigative teams," said Chief Danielle Outlaw, "Their thoroughness in follow-up produced real results to keep us all safer."
