REDMOND, OR -- A Redmond man faces a list of charges following a Wednesday evening altercation. Officers were dispatched to SW 25th and Fissure Loop North for a dispute between two men; one was reportedly armed with a knife.
Investigators say 40-year-old Rudy Gandarilla became upset after the victim drove an acquaintance to his house. Gandarilla confronted the man sitting in the driver's seat, allegedly slashed two of his tires and punched the man in the face several times. He also reportedly ordered the victim to hand over his cell phone and wallet while threatening him with a knife.
Gandarilla went back into his house prior to the arrival of Redmond Police. He cooperated with officers and was arrested for Robbery, Theft, Menacing, Assault and Criminal Mischief. Police recovered the victim's phone, wallet and the knife believed to have been used in the incident. Investigators believe Gandarilla was under the influence of drugs at the time.
