The Jackson County District Attorney's Office announced 52-year-old Vay San Duong pled guilty to all charges in connection with an incident that took place at a property on Lake Creek Loop Road near Eagle Point.

JCSO deputies found "multiple victims who lived and worked at the property with apparent injuries" at the location.
When law enforcement first arrived, the DA's office said Duong fled in one of the victim's vehicles. JCSO pursued Duong and stopped the car, chasing Duong on foot on Highway 140.

Several hours later, JCSO located Duong and took him into custody, finding zip ties in his pocket which matched those used to subdue the victims on the property.
Duong has pleaded guilty to the following charges:
