Incident: Domestic violence / resisting arrest

Case Number: 2021-58108

Date and Time: Wednesday, October 6, 2021 / 1230 PM

Location: 2800 block of NE Sedalia Loop, Bend

Victim: 32 year old female resident of Bend

Suspect: 33 year old male resident of Bend


On 10-6-21 at about 1230 hours, Bend Police Officers received a call from a third party about a co-worker who was possibly the victim of domestic violence. Bend Police responded to the area and were able to communicate directly with the victim and get her to meet them away from the residence.  Bend Police learned the female had been a victim of domestic violence to include assault IV, strangulation, and menacing. They also learned the suspect had destroyed the victim’s phone to prevent her from calling the Police. The victim used a work cell phone to call the third party.

Bend Police learned the suspect had been acting erratic, was likely under the influence of controlled substances, and was last seen barricading himself in an upstairs bedroom with furniture from the house. The suspect indicated he would burn the house down if the Police were contacted and made additional threats that increased the risk factors to him, the Police, and citizens in the neighborhood. For those reasons, members of the Central Oregon Emergency Response Team (CERT) were called to assist.  CERT was joined by DCSO K-9 Ronin.

CERT arrived on scene at about 2:35 PM and began attempting to contact the suspect through a PA system and with Crisis Negotiators via telephone. Several neighbors were contacted and were asked to shelter in place.  When the suspect would not respond to phone calls, a Negotiator responded to the scene and attempted to reason with the suspect through the PA. CERT made continual attempts to get the suspect to exit the residence while Bend Police applied for a search warrant to the residence and for the suspect.  At about 1418 hours, the warrant was granted and CERT advised the suspect he needed to exit the residence and there was a warrant. He still did not comply. He was advised if he did not comply he would be subject to chemical munitions and or a Police K-9. 

CERT eventually introduced chemical agents into the rooms it was believed the suspect was barricaded in and still did not receive a response. CERT entered the residence with K-9 Ronin and located the suspect barricaded in the master bathroom. CERT members were able to force entry into the bathroom and learned the suspect had barricaded himself further in a walk-in closet within the master bathroom. 

A Crisis Negotiator entered the residence to attempt to reason with the suspect, but the suspect still would not comply and began making attempts to harm himself and the Officers by starting a fire. The suspect had emptied a gallon of Acetone in the closet and was in the process of using a lighter to start the fire while making threats to “burn the house down.”  CERT members forced entry into the closet, allowing the door to open enough to allow K-9 Ronin to enter and stop the suspect from starting the fire. A struggle ensued with the suspect as he resisted the attempts to arrest him. He was ultimately subdued by CERT members and K-9 Ronin.  

The suspect was transported to St. Charles, by Bend Fire, where he is being treated for his injuries related to the K-9 bite and other medical issues. It is anticipated he will be charged with the following crimes:

  • Menacing (x2)
  • Strangulation
  • Assault IV (DV)
  • Coercion
  • Attempted Assault IV
  • Criminal Mischief
  • Interfering with making a Police report
  • Resisting arrest
  • Attempted assault on a Police Officer
