Two Bend homes have been victims of home invasions in the last week.  The first one occurred Saturday night on Awbrey Butte.  The second one happened Tuesday morning just before 6 a.m. at a home off Empire in northeast Bend.  Sgt. Ron Taylor with Bend Police explains what happened.  “There were two females in the residence and neither one knew the suspect, which is Cody Hammond.  After he broke in he punched a woman in the face.  They (victim & her roommate) locked themselves in the bathroom and continue to give info to the 911 operator.”  The women did not know the intruder.  Police believe he was under the influence of illegal drugs at the time he broke in.  They also believe Hammond is responsible for numerous vehicle break-ins through the area.  He is currently lodged in the Deschutes County Jail on burglary and assault charges.
