(KOIN) – A 40-year-old man who allegedly asked his neighbors to turn down their music before threatening them with a gun and using racial slurs was taken into custody Thursday evening.
Charles Rose faces charges of menacing, intimidation, unlawful use of a weapon, first-degree criminal trespass, and first-degree burglary.
The Washington County Sheriff’s Office reports that Rose was working on his house in the 16900 block of Southwest Cambridge Drive at about 6:15 p.m. when he went into the garage of a home across the street and asked the people to turn down their music.
The victims refused to turn down the music, and Rose allegedly lifted up his shirt to show a gun tucked his waistband, the sheriff’s office said. The victims still refused to turn it down, and Rose began using racial epitaphs directed at the residents, who were of Hispanic descent. He then left the garage without pulling the gun out of his waistband.
Deputies later arrested Rose at a Beaverton apartment. He remains lodged in the Washington County Jail.
