Man charged with assault after threatening woman with handgun, barricading himself inside residence

Area SWAT and crisis negotiations teams talked Cade Osborn, 39, out of the home and police have charged him with second-degree assault

Clark County Sheriff’s deputies responded to reports of a disturbance involving a handgun at a house in a Vancouver neighborhood last night, after 11 p.m. on Sun., Sept. 25.


When deputies arrived at the 10007 N.E. 54th Court residence, they learned that a man and woman had been arguing, when the man allegedly pointed a gun at the woman, causing her to flee the house.


By the time deputies arrived, the man, later identified as 39-year-old Cade Osborn, had barricaded himself inside the house and was refusing to leave. The Southwest Washington Regional SWAT Team along with the Regional Crisis Negotiation Team responded to the scene and tried to deescalate the situation.
Sheriff’s deputies say that “after several minutes of negotiations,” Osborn surrendered and was taken to the Clark County Jail. He has been charged with assault in the second degree.
