Police say the series of incidents began with a 911 call in the 3100 block of NW Foxtail Place. The caller, who was in his vehicle with his family in front of their home, reported Huber approached their car and told them “I’m not going to hurt your family.” Huber then allegedly tried to open the doors of the vehicle but they were locked so he left.

Police say Huber then approached a father and his 11-year-old son on the bike path near the south end of NW Shooting Star Drive. He asked them where their car keys and house were and then allegedly put the boy in a headlock. The boy’s father hit Huber in the back until he released the boy, and they fled. Police say Huber did not follow them. 

At NW Shooting Star Drive and NW Morning Glory Drive, Huber allegedly approached a woman in her 20’s who was in her car and asked for help. When the victim rolled her window down, police say he pointed a handgun in her face and got into the back seat of her car. Huber forced her to drive while pointing a gun to her head, police said. He also allegedly struck her multiple times with the victim’s cell phone, fondled her, and kicked out a rear window of her car. The victim convinced Huber to let her out at the intersection of NW 27th Street and NW Van Buren Avenue. She fled and police say he stole her car.

Huber then allegedly ditched the car on the 900 block of NW 25th Street. Police say he then pulled a knife on a man walking in the area and told him he was coming with Huber. He then allegedly slapped him and handed him the keys to the stolen car. The man fled, police said.

Huber then allegedly kicked open the back gate of a home on the 2500 block of NW Lincoln Avenue. As Corvallis Police officers began to arrive, Huber allegedly jumped the fence into the 2500 block of NW Coolidge Way and entered that home through an unlocked door. There, police said Huber grabbed the resident but didn’t hurt him.

As he left the home, Corvallis Police Officers arrested him. Huber allegedly told officers he had not hurt anyone, and asked to get a citation for Minor in Posession so he could leave. 

Huber is lodged at the Benton County Jail. His bail is set at $868,500.
