SWAT Team Called In To Subdue Grants Pass Assailant
Grants Pass police responded to a 911 call just before 2 pm yesterday from a young citizen reporting that a strange man had forcibly entered his home, located at 792 NE 11th st, and assaulted his mother.
The suspect, a Grants Pass resident named Sean Strunk, had fled the home where the assault had taken place and barricaded himself inside his home.
Officers negotiated with Strunk while detectives secured a search warrant for the home, at 1029 NE Madrone St. Once the warrant was attained and negotiations were off, the Department Of Public Safety SWAT team was deployed to enter Strunk’s home and extract him, the use of a Taser was employed and resulted in a clean removal with no reported injuries for both police or Strunk.
Strunk was taken to Three Rivers Medical Center for an evaluation before being logged in the Josephine County Jail on a list of charges including assault and battery.
