On Sunday October 7th at 1:01am, the Bend Police Department responded to a stabbing just outside the M and J Tavern, located at 102 NW Greenwood. The victim, David Simmons, reported having a confrontation with the suspect just outside the entrance. Simmons and the suspect are acquaintances.  Simmons went into the M and J Tavern but came out a short later to find the suspect attempting to stab Simmons’ vehicle tires. When Simmons confronted the suspect, Simmons was stabbed in the hand.

Officers responded and found Simmonds suffered a non-life threatening injury to his hand, suspected to be caused by a knife. Bend Fire and Rescue responded to evaluate the injury. Simmonds later went to St. Charles Bend for treatment.

During the investigation, officers located a cell phone belonging to Richardson that was in the area of the dispute. Officers interviewed witnesses from inside the M and J Tavern in an attempt to find out more information regarding Richardson. Officers learned that Richardson resided in La Pine at 53056 Woodstock Drive.

Officers with the Bend Police Department applied for a search warrant for Richardson’s address, which was granted. Bend Police Detectives, the Central Oregon Emergency Response Team (CERT) and the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office responded to the address to serve the search warrant.

Around 8:00am, CERT executed the search warrant and took Richardson into custody without incident. During the warrant, the knife used in the assault was recovered inside of Richardson’s vehicle, a Toyota 4-Runner.

Richardson was transported to the Deschutes County Adult Jail, where he was lodged on charges of Assault II and Criminal Mischief II (damage to Simmonds vehicle).
