BEND, OR -- A 28-year-old Bend woman is accused of hitting her father with a car, Sunday afternoon, then attacking him with pepper spray at his home on Rocking Horse Road.
According to the Sheriff’s office, the 61-year-old man went out to meet his daughter in the driveway when she drove into him, just before 4:30 p.m. Her car then hit a fence, forcing the man onto the windshield. He made his way to the front porch where Emmy Gilbert approached, allegedly spraying him in the face with pepper spray. He ran into the house and investigators say she followed, spraying him in the back of the head.
Gilbert then called 911 to report what she’d done. Her father was assessed by medics but not transported to the hospital. She faces numerous charges, including Assault, Reckless Driving and Unlawful Use of a Weapon.
