Four in McMinnville Arrested for Forcing Two Kids to FightSalem-News.com
The fight video was posted on Facebook
(McMINNVILLE, Ore.) - Earlier this month McMinnville Officers received a call from an out-of- state complainant. The caller was concerned about a fight video posted on Facebook. The caller thought the incident had occurred in McMinnville. The video showed two nine year old boys violently fighting while several adult voices encouraged them to continue attacking each other.
Officers recognized the location of the fight as the parking lot of the RainTree apartments located on NE Lafayette Avenue in McMinnville. The officers determined that the two boys lived on Lafayette Avenue in McMinnville.
The investigating officers obtained a search warrant for the residences on Lafayette Avenue. During the service of the search warrant on October 22, 2010, the officers recovered additional evidence related to the fight shown on the video. The officers were also able to identify that all four adults from the two residences were the voices encouraging the violent behavior in the video.
The officers also noted that both residences were extremely filthy with rotten food and dirty dishes in the kitchen and inadequate edible food available for the children. Both residences had an acrid odor and debris and stains throughout the apartments. Drug paraphernalia was seized in one of the residences.
With DHS's assistance, the children were removed and placed with other responsible parties.
On October 29th, Sara Nisenfeld, Michael Chandler, Jamie Garcia, and Christa Williams were all taken into custody based on a Grand Jury Indictment. They were lodged in the Yamhill County Correctional Facility pending arraignment Monday on the following charges:
Sara Michelle Nisenfeld, DOB 11/09/1978, of McMinnville
Michael Dale Chandler, DOB 11/13/1976, of McMinnville
Jamie Fernando Garcia, DOB 05/04/1979, of McMinnville
Christa Marie Williams, DOB 08/16/1988, of McMinnville
Anyone with questions or with further information regarding this case is asked to contact Officer High at 503-434-7307.
