Location:                      Jack’s Pub, 423 Main St E, Monmouth, Oregon

On June 22, 2020, Monmouth Police officers responded to a report of a disturbance involving an armed subject at Jack’s Pub.  The caller said a subject brandished a knife after an argument about social distancing.  

Officers interviewed the victim, suspect and witnesses at the scene.  The victim stated the suspect called him a racial slur multiple times and pulled a knife from her pocket.  A Swiss Army knife was taken as evidence.  Officers were unable to obtain video footage from Jack’s Pub at the time of the call or during follow-up contacts with the employees.  We hope to receive this footage from the owner or manager as soon as possible. 

On June 24, 2020, Detective Reynolds took Tamara Happe into custody on the above listed charges.  She was lodged at Polk County Jail without incident.  The investigation is ongoing at this time.
