Attention residents of Oregon! Please be safe!
According to court documents, on Friday, 35-year-old Charles Irwin Jackson was charged with attempted murder, assault, rape, contributing to the sexual delinquency of a minor, unlawful use of a weapon, felon in possession of a firearm, menacing, coercion, and strangulation.
Klamath County authorities say Jackson shared a home in Agency Lake, Oregon with a now-17-year-old girl who he confined in their bedroom, and who he allegedly punched and strangled multiple times. Additionally, the sex offender — who was convicted in 1994 of battery with intent to commit sexual assault — allegedly threatened to “skin her alive in the woods” if she reported the abuse.
On June 21, the teenager — who Jackson considered his girlfriend — escaped through the bedroom window and sought refuge at a neighbor’s house. When the 84-year-old neighbor confronted the wanted man, Jackson fired several bullets and eventually shot him in the leg.
Jackson reportedly fled the scene in his pickup truck, where he is nowhere to be found.
Police describe the man as 5 feet 10 inches tall, 210 pounds, Native American, as well as armed and dangerous.
