Man arrested after assaulting woman at Scappoose stoplight
A Scappoose man was arrested last Wednesday, May 23, after a woman reported he approached her car at a stoplight in Scappoose and assaulted her.
Troyman Duhaime, 35, of Scappoose, was booked into Columbia County Jail last week after a woman, who police say is his girlfriend, walked into the Scappoose police station to report she had just been assaulted while sitting in her car at a red light at Southwest Maple Street near Scappoose Middle School.
Using information the victim provided, police went to Duhaime's home, as well as a few other places he was known to frequent, but they couldn't find him, according to Scappoose Police Sgt. Phil Packineau.
"He knew the victim," Packineau said of Duhaime, noting the case is considered a domestic situation because Duhaime and the victim were dating.
"Apparently they had a couple altercations with each other earlier in the day," Packineau said. "He just happened to see her at that intersection and realized she was there and he made contact with her. Right after the incident took place, she came here, we had her checked out, and we got all the information of who was involved. We went to his address and a couple other addresses and could not find him. Later that evening, he called us back and we responded to his house."
Duhaime was arrested by Scappoose Police Officer Matthew Dorick and booked on charges of fourth-degree assault, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, menacing, harassment, and disorderly conduct. Jail records show Duhaime was also charged with probation violation. He was convicted last May of assault and possession of heroin, and has another case pending in Columbia County Circuit Court for being a felon in possession of a firearm and first-degree theft.
Duhaime is scheduled
to go to trial in that case this July.
Duhaime is currently being held without bail and is scheduled to be released from jail June 6.
