REDMOND, OR -- A Redmond man faces a list of charges after holding police at bay during a nearly 6 hour standoff. Officers responded to Southwest Redmond just after 6:45 Wednesday evening, after William Wilson reportedly threatened to kill his wife. Lt. Mike Kidwell tells KBND News Wilson was following the woman with a knife. "It started out in the area of 31st and Lava, almost like a domestic disturbance. And, continued out to Obsidian and down the street on Obsidian when we finally got the call. By the time we got there, he had already returned back to his residence on Lava."
Lt. Kidwell says 31-year old Wilson would not come out of the house for police. At 12:15 a.m., after obtaining a search warrant, "We ended up entering the residence with the Central Oregon Emergency Response Team. Once we got inside, he was located in the kitchen area and he was taken into custody without incident." He is charged with Menacing, harassment, drug possession and being a felon in possession of a weapon.
