BEND, OR -- Thirty-one-year-old Brett Vanscoy was arrested Saturday morning, after his ex-girlfriend reported he held her against her will and repeatedly sexually assaulted her. Bend Police Nick Parker tells KBND News, "It had been going on since February 28 of this year. Officers investing the case determined Vanscoy had held the unnamed female victim in a residence against her will at one point. Over that time, he assaulted her, he strangled her, forcibly raped her and then committed additional sexual-related offenses."
The investigation is ongoing and Parker says they are talking to witnesses. The 35-year old woman had filed a restraining order against Vanscoy, but he had not yet been served. Vanscoy faces a number of charges, including first-degree rape, kidnapping and strangulation.
