Woodburn man rams police car with stolen vehicle, arrested on more than a dozen charges
A Woodburn man was arrested on more than a dozen charges, including domestic assault, assaulting a police officer, hit and run and robbery, stemming from three separate incidents dating back to May.
Isaac Alexis Rayles-Valdivia, 20, was arrested on Aug. 5 after Woodburn police responded to a domestic disturbance between Rayles-Valdivia and his ex-girlfriend near the Woodburn Walmart. Rayles-Valdivia approached his ex-girlfriend while she was walking with their 2-year old child, took him, and ran from the area on foot. Officers arrived and located Rayles-Valdivia near the I-5 interchange and placed him into custody. The child was returned to his mother unharmed.
According to reports, Woodburn police had issued a warrant for Rayles-Valdivia's arrest on charges of fourth-degree domestic violence in June after his ex-girlfriend stated he had struck her three times at an apartment on May 29.
Following the warrant issued for his arrest, Rayles-Valdivia was involved in another altercation on July 12.
Woodburn police responded to a report of a stolen vehicle on the 300 block of Baylor Drive in Woodburn at 5:31 p.m. Later that evening, the victim notified police that his stolen vehicle, a Chevy Silverado, was located in front of a business at the 1500 block of Mount Hood Avenue. When police arrived, the victim and several friends were in a physical altercation with the theft suspect, who was identified as Rayles-Valdivia.
Rayles-Valdivia broke away from the fight before police could approach, and entered into a 2015 Ford truck belonging to one of the victim's friends that was left running. He rammed a responding police vehicle as he fled the scene and continued to flee at a high rate of speed, evading capture by the police.
The officer in the vehicle that was rammed did not require immediate medical attention.
The Chevy Silverado that was initially suspected to have been stolen by Rayles-Valdivia was recovered along with a stolen handgun.
Following his arrest on Aug. 5, Rayles-Valdivia was charged with two counts of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, three counts of menacing, two counts of failure to perform duties of a driver when property is damaged, failure to perform duties of a driver to injured persons, second degree assault, first degree attempted assault, three counts of endangering another person, first degree robbery, third degree assault, assaulting a police officer, attempting to elude police, reckless driving, second degree criminal mischief and felony hit and run in conjunction with the actions on July 12.
Rayles-Valdivia was arrested on additional charges stemming from the domestic disturbances on May 29 and Aug. 5, which include interfering with making a report, menacing, first degree theft, recklessly endangering another and fourth-degree assault.
Rayles-Valdivia was lodged at the Marion County Jail.
