Mill City man held in Detroit-area assault

A Mill City man is in custody for his role in what police say was a domestic disturbance last weekend in the Detroit Lake area.

Christopher Ryan Favor, 36, is being held in the Linn County Jail on a series of charges: assault in the second degree, strangulation, kidnapping in the second degree, unlawful use of a weapon, felon in possession of a firarm, reckless endangering and criminal mischief in the first degree.

Linn County Sheriff’s Office deputies were called Saturday, July 9, to a campsite near Detroit Lake. An unidentified woman had entered the campsite after walking several miles to get help after an altercation with her boyfriend.

Deputies found Favor in a campsite on Forest Service Road NF-634 on the south side of Detroit Lake about 4.5 miles from Highway 22. Favor was arrested without incident, said a release from the Linn County Sheriff’s Office. 

The woman, who was beaten up and reportedly shot at by Favor, initially refused treatment but was later treated at the Santiam Hospital.
