Male Taken into Custody by Deschutes County Sheriff's Office SWAT Team (Photo) - 05/22/23

Release By: Sergeant Jason Wall

Release Date: May 22, 2023

Location: 64000 block of Tumalo Rim Drive, Bend, Oregon

Arrested: Vincent, Jeremiah Anthony 47-year-old male, Bend

Charges: Probation Violation (Original Charge Assault IV)



On the morning of May 22, 2023, Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to the 64000 block of Tumalo Rim Drive to conduct a welfare check on a female resident, and her two infant children.

Initial reports detailed the female was a prior domestic violence victim, and the offending party Jeremiah Anthony Vincent was on scene and had assaulted her. The reporting party advised Deschutes County 911 Dispatch the female victim was too scared to contact law enforcement, and her two infant children, under the ages of four were present with her at the residence.

Deputies responded to the area of the residence, and attempted phone contact to the victim who denied being at the residence. Deputies were able to determine this was not true and began initiating protocols for the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team to respond.

Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office SWAT members responded to the scene and assumed command of the incident. Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office detectives responded to the scene and assisted with the investigative portion of the incident.

Based on the knowledge of the female being a prior victim of domestic violence, the fact two infant children were on scene, and the training and experience of the investigators about the cycle of abuse, this incident was treated as a hostage rescue.

Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office detectives applied for and were granted a search warrant for the residence, to include all outbuildings and curtilage.

All investigative and negotiation tactics were employed during the over six-hour event. The female eventually agreed to exit the residence with her two children, however Jeremiah Vincent remained inside and refused to exit.

Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team members continued to loud hail the residence as they had for over three hours. Vincent eventually exited the rear of the residence when the front door was breached. Vincent was taken into custody and lodged at the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Adult Jail on the above listed charge.

Residents close to the incident were notified through the Emergency Preparedness Network, and advised there was no current threat to the community however heavy law enforcement presence was occurring in the area.
