A domestic disturbance in Sheridan escalated into a one-hour standoff with Yamhill County deputies on Friday afternoon and resulted in the arrest of a Sheridan man on multiple charges, including attempted murder.
Rajeed Carriman, 34, was arraigned in Yamhill County Circuit Court on Monday. He was charged with attempted murder, assault in the first degree, unlawful use of a weapon and menacing. He is being held in Yamhill County jail on $300,000 bail.
Yamhill County Communications received a 911 call at approximately 4:03 p.m. on Dec. 16 for a domestic disturbance in the 700 block of West Main Street in Sheridan.
When deputies arrived they found the front door locked and heard a female calling for help inside.
Deputies entered the house where they found Summer Carriman, 29, bleeding from her left ear and neck. She told them that her husband, later identified as Rajeed Carriman, had caused the injury and then fled out the back door with a knife.
The victim was treated for her injuries and released at Willamette Valley Medical Center.
