LA PINE, OR -- One person was arrested early Wednesday morning, following an alleged assault in La Pine. According to the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office, a man arrived at the La Pine Fire Station just before 11:00 p.m. Tuesday, saying he'd been assaulted by someone he knew. The 44-year-old victim was taken to St. Charles Bend with serious injuries.


Deputies responded to a house on Wyatt Drive, where the suspect was determined to be inside. Oregon State Police and the Sheriff's Special Operations Team (SOT) assisted at the location. SOT members worked through the night to establish contact with 45-year-old Jesse Jones of La Pine, who later exited the house without incident. He was arrested just before 5:00 a.m., Wednesday. Jones faces one charge of first degree assault, as well as unlawful use of a weapon and a probation violation.
