SALEM – A 33-year-old man was arrested for assaulting a homeowner during a burglary in Salem Monday night.

A neighbor called 911 to report a suspicious person around 11:30 p.m. The owner of the house then called 911 saying a man tried to strangle him, before he tried to steal prescription drugs and ran from the house.

Deputies and a K-9 unit tracked the scent across the Santiam River to a home in the 300 block of Blossom Avenue.

There, they arrested Waylon Clayton Blanchette, who matched the description of the suspect in the assault and burglary.
