Arrest made in blow dart assault

Mac High student charged with Class C felony

The McMinnville Police Department has arrested a 16-year-old McMinnville High School student in connection with a blow dart assault that occurred last week at Joe Dancer Park.

Capt. Matt Scales said the juvenile was cited on charges of assault IV and reckless endangering, both Class A misdemeanors, and unlawful use of a weapon, a Class C felony. 

According to police, a teenager was running in the park on Tuesday, Aug. 21 when a blow dart struck him in the back as a small, older pickup passed by. The vehicle was described as light blue with horizontal lines running along the side panels, behind the doors.

The News-Register does not normally print the names of juvenile offenders unless they face Class A or B felony charges — the most serious under Oregon law.
