Bond was set at $300,000 Monday for a Hagerstown man charged with assaulting Washington County Sheriff's Department deputies and attempting to escape from a moving vehicle, court records state.

Donald E. Rowe Jr., 38, of 143 S. Mulberry St., was charged with four counts of second-degree assault, three counts of malicious destruction of property less than $500, two counts of malicious destruction of property more than $500, resisting arrest, second-degree escape and fourth-degree burglary, records state.

On Friday, deputies found Rowe, who was wanted on unrelated charges, at 18818 Preston Road and took him into custody, records say.

During a struggle at the residence, Rowe struck at least three deputies and broke a police radio, a pair of glasses and a wristwatch, deputies alleged.

Deputies alleged that a handcuffed and shackled Rowe, while being driven to the department, kicked the window out of a department vehicle and jumped out while the vehicle was moving.

Rowe was again taken into custody in the basement of a house in the 100 block of Devonshire Road, deputies said.

Rowe was being held at the Washington County Detention Center Monday, a detention center spokesman said.
