Domestic Violence Suspect Captured In North Redding

A Redding man has been arrested for what police say was a particularly vicious domestic violence attack. At 7 O’clock Wednesday morning, officers arrived at a home on Flintwood Way and spoke with a woman who said she had been assaulted by her boyfriend, 41-year-old Jeremy Allen Roudebush, who also lives at the Flintwood Way home. She said the attack began Tuesday night when an argument was punctuated by Roudebush punching her in the face repeatedly with closed fists, then strangling her to unconsciousness at least three times. She said he also used a baseball bat to jab and strike her, and to smash glassware to intentionally shower her with shards of broken glass. He then reportedly forced her to sit in a chair while he taped her hands together and told her he was going to kill her. She says he demanded she empty her bank accounts and made her go with him to two different banks to withdraw her money from ATM machines, saying he was going to buy guns because “Gangsters like him should have guns.” Roudebush then took the victim to a mutual acquaintance’s home. When he allegedly started punching her again, a witness intervened and he fled in her car with her purse and phone. Roudebush was already on probation out of Butte County and wanted on three felony warrants. RPD Investigators started looking for Roudebush and, following a tip, headed to the Masonic Avenue area, where they saw him going into the Dollar Tree. Officers were waiting for him when he emerged. He ran back inside and tried to escape out the back door, but he was quickly caught and subdued. He faces multiple felonies and is being held on $200,000 bail. Redding Police remind domestic violence victims that help is always available. Information on One Safe Place can be found at ospshasta.org.
