Man arrested for assaulting his estranged wife


A 41-year-old man has been arrested for suspicion of raping his estranged wife at her home on the Wishkah Road north of Aberdeen Thursday, according to the Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies were called to the home about 11 a.m. when a 35-year-old woman said her husband came to the home after their children had gone to school, sexually assaulted her then left.

She told deputies she had been separated from her husband since February but occasionally had contact due to their children. She said she was pursuing a no contact order, but the Sheriff’s Office said it did not appear to have been completed yet.

She was transported to Grays Harbor Community Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

About 2 p.m., detectives located the suspect parked at the end of Greenwood Road north of Hoquiam. He was subsequently arrested and transported to the Grays Harbor County Jail and booked for Domestic Violence Rape in the first degree.
