BEND, OR -- Bend Police arrested a 28-year-old transient early Wednesday morning, after responding to a reported domestic disturbance at a northwest Bend apartment. A neighbor called police after hearing what sounded like a physical altercation at the adjoining unit. Officers arrived at the River Run Condominiums on NW Riverside at about 5:30 a.m. and learned John Spriggs had allegedly assaulted two women and damaged another apartment.
According to police, Spriggs was an invited guest of the women who lived in apartment 6, but they asked him to leave after he acted inappropriately. He refused to leave, allegedly broke several items and assaulted the two residents. They locked themselves in their bathroom while Spriggs continued to break things. He eventually left, only to kick in the door of apartment 3, walk into the bedroom of the sleeping residents and yelling demands for them to hand over his hoodie.
After causing extensive damage in both units, Spriggs left. He was found by responding officers and arrested on Burglary and Assault charges. Bend Police believe alcohol was a factor in the incident.
