News Release
Assault on Scottdale St. - 05/03/21

On May 3rd, 2021 at about 1 a.m., Deputies responded to a report of an assault at an address on Scottdale Street in Eugene.  Deputies determined Bret Ellis had assaulted the victim, who was known to him, and then fled the area.  The victim was transported by ambulance.  While deputies were in route to Ellis’s address to attempt contact, a 911 call came in from the location regarding Ellis.  Deputies responded to the area and contacted Ellis walking down the road.  He refused orders to stop until an LCSO police canine arrived.  He was then taken into custody without issue.  Further investigation led to Ellis being lodged at the Lane County Jail on charges of Attempted Rape 1, Assault 2, and Strangulation.
