Bend Police are handling another home invasion case.  This one happened in northeast Bend at a home on Fairey Court off of Empire.  The break in happened this morning just before 6 a.m. when Cody Hammond, 29, of Bend forced his way into a home.  After he entered the home, he punched a sleeping womanin the face, while she was sleeping in the home. She and another woman living there locked themselves in the bathroom and called police.  Police arrived with the K-9 unit and were able to subdue Hammond with the dog and the use of a taser.  Hammond is not known to either women, and it's believed he was under the influence of illegal drugs at the time he broke into the home.  Officers also believe Hammond is responsible for numerous vehicle break-ins throughout the area.

 

Hammond is currently lodged in the Deschutes County Jail on charges of burglary and assault.
