The suspect arrested behind the Lighthouse School last week has been identified as Shawn M. Hampton. According to a press release from the Coos County Sheriff’s Office, Hampton, 25, from Coos Bay, was arrested after he allegedly tried to stab K9 Odin with a kitchen knife. Odin had been called on after law enforcement responded to reports of a man with a knife near the Lighthouse School and placed the school on a brief lockdown as they investigated. Odin was brought out after the suspect fled and was apprehended behind Lighthouse School’s playground. “K9 Odin’s harness protected him and Odin was not injured,” the release said. “(Hampton) received minor injuries and was treated and cleared for incarceration.” As law enforcement investigated, it was determined that Hampton had reportedly punched his mother multiple times, shoved her down and held a knife to her.
