NEVADA – A man was taken into custody over the weekend on charges related to domestic battery and other offenses. The incident unfolded on Aug. 10 when patrol deputies from the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office responded to a service call on Sergei Street in Sun Valley.
Upon reaching the scene, deputies encountered a woman who had fallen victim to a physical assault and strangulation. The alleged assailant was identified as 32-year-old Jacob Madden, who managed to escape before law enforcement’s arrival.
Six days later, on Aug. 16, a collaborative effort involving WCSO deputies, K9 units, and members of the Regional Crime Suppression Unit successfully located and apprehended Madden without any untoward incident.
The charges leveled against Madden include:
– Domestic battery by strangulation
– False statement to obstruction
– Criminal contempt
– Failure to appear
Sheriff Darin Balaam praised the diligence and determination of the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office personnel and regional law enforcement partners involved in the arrest. “We do not and will not tolerate any form of domestic violence in our community,” Sheriff Balaam asserted, “and will use all available resources at the WCSO to bring those responsible for physical harm to justice.”
The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office affirms that this investigation is ongoing and urges individuals with information related to the case to contact them at 775-328-3001, referencing case number #23-4114.
