A Redmond resident held another woman against her will and sparked a five-hour standoff with Redmond Police, OSP, the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, and the Central Oregon Eergency Response Team Saturday afternoon. The suspect was seen by neighbors waiving a knife in the air and yelling out of her apartment window near NW 4th Street and Greenwood. Patrol officers rescued the captive woman. The suspect was taken into custody around 5:30 p.m. and sent to a hospital for evaluation. Streets in the area were closed during the incident and several other apartments were evacuated.
