REDMOND, OR -- An assault investigation shut down Highway 97 in Redmond Monday, just before the morning commute. Initial reports were of a man lying in the road with serious injuries and may have been hit by a car, at about 4:20 a.m. However, as the investigation continued, Redmond police determined the 39-year-old transient had been assaulted.


The victim was able to provide details to police at the hospital. Jonathan Bailey of Redmond was arrested yesterday afternoon, in connection with the assault. A second suspect, Jason Nelson, has been contacted through his attorney.
Investigators say the suspects and the victim were acquaintances and the assault may have been been related to an earlier trespassing incident. 
UPDATE: Redmond Police say Jason Nelson has been charged with Third Degree Assault. He was booked then released from the Deschutes County Jail, Tuesday. The investigation is ongoing, as is the underlying alleged trespassing potentially connected with the assault.
