Aberdeen Police Department Commander Steve Timmons says that a 39-year-old Aberdeen resident was arrested early Monday morning and booked into the Aberdeen City Jail for Assault 4th Domestic Violence and Interfering with the Reporting of Domestic Violence.
On Monday morning, January 22nd, 2024 at about 1:32am, Aberdeen Officers were dispatched to a DVA (Domestic Violence Assault) at an address on W. 3rd Street in Aberdeen. The reporting party, a 32-year-old Aberdeen woman, reported being physically assaulted by her husband.
On arrival, Officers contacted and interviewed both involved parties and probable cause was established to arrest the male subject for assault 4th DV and interfering with the reporting of domestic violence.
The suspect RILEY CARTER (ACCORDING TO JAIL RECORDS) was booked into the Aberdeen City jail for Assault 4th degree Domestic Violence and Interfering with the Reporting of Domestic Violence, both misdemeanor offenses. Because the suspect is a current Aberdeen City Council Member and due to the potential conflict of interest, the case will be handled by the Hoquiam Municipal Court.
