On Thursday, Washington County Sheriff's office deputies were dispatched to hit and run crash near the area of SW 198th Ave. and SW Kinnaman Road. Deputies found out a blue Toyota 4Runner, stolen out of Forest Grove earlier in the morning, had left the scene. Deputies responded to the area and saw the Toyota heading east on SW Farmington Road.
Deputies tried to stop the Toyota, but the vehicle was able to elude them near SW 170th Ave. and SW Farmington Road. Shortly after, dispatch received a call of a suspicious male, later identified as Isaiah Mohr, cleaning a blue Toyota 4Runner near the 16000 block of SW Timberland Drive.
Two deputies arrived, located Mohr with the vehicle, and confirmed it was the stolen Toyota 4Runner. The Toyota and a patrol car collided as the suspect attempted to flee, causing one deputy to sustain injuries. The deputy was transported to a local hospital by Metro West Ambulance and has since been released. Immediately after colliding with the first deputy, the suspect hit another patrol car and caused minor damage.
The Toyota left the scene of both crashes and was seen shortly after traveling northbound on SW 170th Ave. The suspect attempted to turn west on SW Sugar Plum Lane but failed to navigate the turn causing him to crash through a home. Mohr ran from the vehicle and into a nearby house on SW 171st Ave., which was occupied by an adult female who was eventually able to get out safely. Deputies surrounded the house and could see Mohr inside. At one point, deputies saw Mohr make a sandwich for himself in the kitchen.
Member of the inter-agency Washington County Tactical Negotiation Team (TNT), Robot Team, and, Crisis Negotiation Unit (CNU) responded to the scene. Mr. Mohr refused to come out of the home or communicate with negotiators. TNT members entered the house and took Mr. Mohr into custody.
