A man arrested for enter-
ing a Seaside home and as-
saulting another man earlier
this month has been charged
with attempted murder.
Seaside Police responded
to the 1200 block of Queen
Street just before 1 p.m. June
8. They found Roland Louw,
32, of Montgomery, Texas,
sitting on the sidewalk.
He had allegedly broken
into the home roughly 10 min-
utes earlier and wrestled with
a man, eventually placing him
in a chokehold.
Louw, a transient origi-
nally from South Africa, has
never met the alleged victim,
Clatsop County District Attor-
ney Josh Marquis said.
A grand jury indicted
Louw on the attempted mur-
der charge last week along
with the original charges of
first-degree burglary, sec-
ond-degree assault, first-de-
gree criminal mischief and
strangulation.
An early resolution confer-
ence has been scheduled for
July.

Seaside standoff suspect pleads not guilty
By Jack Heffernan
EO Media Group
A Seaside man arrested
following a standoff with po-
lice earlier this month pleaded
not guilty Monday, June 12, to
charges of felon in possession
of a firearm, interfering with
a peace officer and reckless
driving.
Shaun Mitchell Scarbor-
ough, 28, held a kitchen knife
to his throat for nearly two
hours June 2 as Seaside Police
attempted to arrest him at an
apartment on South Columbia
Street, Lt. Bruce Holt said.
He eventually was struck by
a stun gun and arrested just
after 5 p.m.
Shaun Scarborough
Police initially responded
just before 2:30 p.m. to a re-
port of a physical disturbance
between Scarborough and his
mother at the apartment. But
Scarborough was gone when
police arrived, and no charges
resulted from the original re-
port.
Neighbors then said they
had seen him drive recklessly,
maneuvering quickly around
corners.
Officers located the silver
Audi that Scarborough had
been driving minutes later at a
home a couple of blocks away,
although he was not there. A
handgun was allegedly found
inside, and Scarborough is a
convicted felon. The keys to
the car were later found in
Scarborough’s
possession,
police said.
After police spotted the
car, he was later seen fleeing
back toward the apartment on
South Columbia Street.
Police then located Scar-
borough in the kitchen of the
apartment as he held the knife
to his throat. Officers took
cover since they could not see
Scarborough for a portion of
the standoff, Holt said.
Following a lengthy con-
versation with Scarborough,
police were able to get closer
to him before they eventually
used a stun gun on him and
arrested him. Police used the
stun gun because they noticed
what could have been the han-
dle of a blade in his left hand
as they got closer, Holt said.
The object turned out to be a
bandage on his middle finder
resulting from a staph infec-
tion.
Scarborough could face
up to seven years in prison if
convicted on all charges.
