BEND, OR -- A burglary suspect was stabbed inside a southwest Bend home he thought was empty, Friday night. Police say 31-year-old Blaise Butcher entered the Doanna Way house looking to take property; but instead, encountered two people. At some point during the confrontation, Butcher was stabbed with a knife.
He was treated at the hospital for non-life threatening injuries. Investigators say Butcher did not know the man and woman who confronted him; but he does know the homeowner, who was not there at the time.
Officers executed a search warrant at the home, Saturday morning. The investigation is ongoing.
