A Redmond man is behind bars, charged with the attempted murder of a Bend woman. Bend Police report they were called to a Bend residence just after midnight Thursday, after a woman claimed she was sexually assaulted in her home.
Police say Jody Brooks, 51, of Redmond allegedly entered the woman's home uninvited; although he knew the woman. Brooks allegedly threatened the woman with a knife, held her against her will, sexually assaulted her and threatened to kill her. The woman was able to break free and run to a neighbor where they called the police.
Officers found Brooks still in the woman's home, and had cut his own wrists and neck, although the cuts were superficial. He was taken to St. Charles for treatment and released to the police. He is lodged in the Deschutes County Jail on various charges including attempted murder, kidnap, sex abuse, burglary and more.
