Berry Creek, CA – On August 2, 2016, at about 12:47 am, the Butte County Sheriff’s Office (BCS0) received a 9-1-1 call from a female on He-Le-Ve Road, Berry Creek. The female reported she was hiding in the woods after her husband, 57 year old Glen Vaughan, assaulted her mother-in-law and her. The female caller reported her mother-in-law was still inside of the home along with an ill female whom she was a caregiver for. Vaughan was reported to still be inside of the home as well. Deputies received information that Vaughan had access to a crossbow and possibly a shotgun inside of the home.
Upon the Deputies arrival, the mother-in-law was out of the home however the ill female remained inside with Vaughan. Both females had injuries. One of the females reported being struck by Vaughan with an unknown object. Both females were treated on-scene by Medics for non-life threatening injuries.
Deputies communicated with Vaughan for several hours in an attempt to get him to come out. Vaughan refused to exit the home and at one point was heard telling the ill female to not open the door. Deputies also saw Vaughan escort the ill female to one of the windows briefly before retreating out of sight of the Deputies. Vaughan also told the Deputies he would shoot them if they entered his home.
With evidence that Vaughan had already assaulted the other two females and concerned the ill female was being held against her will, Deputies forced entry into the home. The remaining female was safely escorted out of the home. She was uninjured. The Deputies continued to search the home and located Vaughan in a bedroom where he was taken into custody. Vaughan and Deputies were uninjured.
Vaughan was booked at the Butte County Jail for Domestic Violence, Criminal Threats, Resisting an Executive Officer, Felon in Possession of Ammunition, and Assault. The investigation is ongoing and additional charges may be added. Vaughan’s bail was set at $133,000.
