BEND, OR -- Bend Police arrested a transient yesterday morning, after they say he threatened people at St. Charles Medical Center. Investigators say 31-year-old Ryan Simpson was contacted by security guards inside the hospital because he was acting suspicious. 


As they walked him out of the facility, Simpson allegedly brandished a knife and at one point threatened to shoot the men. After an area search by several agencies, Bend Police officers took Simpson into custody without incident, at about 8 a.m., in a backyard near NE Williamson and Paula Drive. A knife was recovered nearby, but no gun was found. 
 
Simpson possibly matches the description of a suspect in a recent crime in Redmond, as well. The investigation is ongoing.
