GOLD HILL, Ore. — A Gold Hill man is in jail on Friday after reportedly assaulting a woman and then barricading himself in his home for three hours with their two children.

Deputies from the Jackson County Sheriff's Office (JCSO) responded to a home in the 1100-block of Fourth Avenue in Gold Hill just after 10 p.m. on Thursday after reports of a domestic violence incident. A woman came outside to meet deputies, and appeared to have injuries "consistent with an assault."

The suspect, 25-year-old Cody Everett Banks, refused to speak with deputies and barricaded himself inside the home with the couple’s two children. According to JCSO, Banks claimed to have a firearm.

A JCSO SWAT team responded to the house to assist deputies, where they tried to convince Banks to leave the house. Banks continued to refuse, JCSO said.

Deputies later obtained a search warrant for the residence. The SWAT team entered the home at 1:15 in the morning and "took Banks into custody without further incident." The children were found to be unharmed.

JCSO says that a deputy transported Banks to Providence Medford Medical Center for a medical assessment following his arrest. He was lodged in jail Friday morning on the following charges: Fourth Degree Assault (felony), Harassment, and Interfering with a Peace Officer. His bail has been set at $15,000.
