BEND, OR -- Four people were arrested in connection with an armed car-jacking. Bend Police Lt. Nick Parker says the four are accused of stealing a car at gunpoint from 25-year old Irvin Frangoso before 8:30 p.m., Sunday. "Officers arrived and found that the victim had actually been forced at gunpoint to hand over his car keys to his 1994 white Nissan Sentra. The victim had also been made to declothe, or take his clothes off, before the suspects left, to inconvenience him so he wasn't able to quickly contact the police." It all happened near the Chalet Motel off of Third St.
At about 9:45 p.m., a Deschutes County deputy spotted the car and attempted to stop it near Hwy 20 and NE 27th. But, the driver took off and, police say, tried to run them off the road. Christopher May of Prineville, Cyle Stewart of Bend and transient Kaila Vasquez-Martinez all face a number of charges, including theft and robbery. Lora Heinrich of Bend was booked on a felony warrant.
