Karl Volosin – predatory sex offender – habitual criminal

A man that police have been looking for for several weeks was arrested Wednesday afternoon in the Green District, after he was found living under a tarp along the South Umpqua River.

Sheriff’s Deputies say children playing in the area along River Place in Green noticed the man living under the tarp.

Deputies say they identified the man as 27-year-old Karl Volosin, who jumped in the water and swam downstream. After about a 45 minute chase, Volosin was taken into custody.

Police say Volosin is a predatory sex offender, who was wanted on several local warrants stemming from an incident in July of this year, when he allegedly assaulted a man and led deputies on a vehicle pursuit.

With the help of Sheriff’s officers, Roseburg Police, Winston Police and several citizens, Volosin was found hiding under a porch on Adams Loop.

He was charged with Criminal Trespass II, Assault II, Criminal Mischief I, Attempting to Elude, Reckless Driving and Failure to Register as a Sex Offender.

Bail is set at $300,000.
