COOS BAY — A Coos Bay man faces domestic abuse charges after he was arrested Monday for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend.

Jeromy Haren, 29, was arrested on charges of domestic assault in the fourth degree, domestic strangulation and domestic harassment charges following the Monday night assault in the 66300 block of U.S. Highway 101, according to a Coos County Sheriff's Office press release.

At 10:09 p.m., the Coos County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call regarding a domestic dispute at the Bay Bridge Motel located at 66304 Highway 101, North Bend. Prior to a deputy’s arrival, the dispatch center was told the suspect, Haren, had left on foot heading north over the McCullough Bridge. The Coos County Sheriff’s Office worked with North Bend Police Department and the Coos Bay Police Department to locate Haren prior to the deputy’s arrival.

During the investigation, it was discovered the Haren was intoxicated and had been "very disrespectful" to his girlfriend. Haren’s girlfriend asked him to leave the motel room numerous times before a physical altercation occurred. Deputies learned from the victim that during the physical altercation, Haren had strangled his girlfriend and slammed her on the bed multiple times before leaving the scene on foot. Strangulation or “choked” is when any disruption of the breathing takes place by compression on the neck by a person.

Haren was placed under arrest without incident. Haren’s girlfriend was transported to Bay Area Hospital for injuries sustained during the physical altercation.

Haren was booked and lodged at the Coos County Jail. His bail was set at $25,000.
