Resident warns intoxicated thief with shot in the floor
Devon 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.JW_DISQUS_ADD_A_COMMENT
