Photo Credit: CLACKAMAS COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICE - Devon Scott WoltringDevon S. Woltring, 22, of Estacada is in jail after allegedly stealing money, returning to the home and attacking the resident.

Sandy Police officers arrived at a home in the 400 block of Southwest Hawthorne Road at 8:35 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 19, in response to a report of a disturbance involving a knife and gun.

Police said the allegedly intoxicated suspect had returned to a residence he had stolen money from earlier and attacked the homeowner, who was armed with a 9mm handgun.

Woltring, police say, then struggled with the resident over the gun and backed him up the entire length of the house before the homeowner fired a warning shot into the floor.

Police also say Woltring assaulted a guest in the home.

The incident ended when a neighbor reportedly dragged him from the home, where police detained Woltring at the scene.

Woltring is lodged in the Clackamas County Jail on accusations of first-degree burglary, fourth-degree assault and menacing.

Bail is set at $80,000.
