Man faces menacing, kidnapping charges
A Eugene man was being held Sunday night on charges of kidnapping and resisting arrest after police found him allegedly threatening his girlfriend with a kitchen knife early Sunday morning.
Jeremy Brandon Lee, 24, was arrested after police, responding to reports of a man shouting in the street, arrived at Lee's home at 1801 Moss St. at about 2:56 a.m. and saw him threatening his girlfriend with the knife.
Patrol officers, along with SWAT team members and a police dog, challenged Lee when he briefly separated from the victim. He ran deeper into the house and was found hiding in a closet, police said.
Lee sustained superficial injuries from struggling with the officers and the dog as they tried to remove him from the closet and handcuff him, police said. Neither the officers nor the dog was injured.
Lee was being held in the Lane County Jail, where he also faces a charge of menacing.
