News Release
Son Arrested for Stabbing Father; Charged with Attempted Murder - 01/10/22

On Sunday, January 9, 2022, at 2:43 p.m., Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to an assault with a weapon call on NW Oak Knoll Place, near NW Shadow Hills Lane. This is in the Bethany area, part of the Enhanced Sheriff’s Patrol District (ESPD). A 58-year-old man called 9-1-1 to report that his 18-year-old son, Aiden Samson had just stabbed him.

The suspect had left the area prior to deputies arriving at the scene. The victim was transported to a local trauma hospital with numerous stab wounds to his head, neck, shoulders, arms, and buttocks. The wounds ended up being non-life-threatening.

The victim told deputies it was an unprovoked attack using kitchen knives.

The suspect was located Sunday evening by the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office. He was transported to the Washington County Jail on charges of assault in the second degree and attempted murder. The case will be referred to the Washington County District Attorney’s Office for prosecution.

The Enhanced Sheriff's Patrol District (ESPD) provides law enforcement services for more than 237,000 residents in the urban areas outside of cities in Washington County, including Bethany, Cedar Mill, Cedar Hills, Aloha, Reedville, Garden Home, Metzger, Rock Creek, Raleigh Hills, Bull Mountain, Bonny Slope, West Slope, Oak Hills, and more.
