On Saturday (Sept. 30) at about 8:45 a.m., Clark County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) deputies were notified of a significant domestic violence incident that occurred in Lakewood, WA.  Matthew Liles, 36, was found inside the female victim’s residence upon her return home.  

Over a 1- to 2-hour period of time, Liles assaulted, threatened to kill, and choked the victim until she was unconscious.  Fearing he killed the victim he lessened his aggression toward her, and she was able to escape and contact 9-1-1.  Liles fled the area in his vehicle, described as a white in color Chevy Colorado without license plates. It was also reported he was “high” on fentanyl.  Liles was reportedly associated with a residence in Amboy.  

Lakewood police indicated they had probable cause to arrest Liles for Assault 1 – Domestic Violence.  Approximately one hour after first learning of the incident, a Clark County Sheriff deputy spotted the vehicle in north Clark County and made attempts to turn around to re-locate.  Additional deputies and area law enforcement responded to the area to assist in the search.  

Liles was re-located in the vehicle and refused to comply with the traffic stop. He drove recklessly and made attempts to elude.  Because the incident involved a violent domestic violence incident, deputies were authorized to engage in a vehicle pursuit to effect his arrest and to ensure he can cause no further harm to the victim.  

A Clark County Sheriff deputy conducted a pursuit immobilization technique (PIT) forcing the vehicle off the roadway at the 7600 block of NE 259th Street.  The vehicle was immobilized.  

Liles was arrested by CCSO deputies and assisted by the Battle Ground Police Department, Ridgefield Police Department, and the Washington State Patrol.  Liles was also found to be in possession of fentanyl pills. The roadway was temporarily blocked to complete the investigation.  

No injuries occurred.   

Liles was transferred to the Lakewood Police Department. 

As the event unfolded, area law enforcement temporarily lost sight of the suspect vehicle.  The Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the citizens that correctly guided pursuing law enforcement onto his path of travel.
