BEND, OR -- A Bend man is accused of violently attacking an acquaintance with a knife while he slept. Police were called to a home on DeHaviland Street in Northeast Bend, just before 10 p.m. Tuesday, for a report of a fight in progress. The first officers on scene say they discovered the front door had been forced open and a 48-year-old victim was found inside. He was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Investigators later identified 45-year-old Christopher Grant as a suspect and the Central Oregon Emergency Response Team (CERT) was deployed to his Bear Creek home, due to the severity of the assault. The Negotiation Team convinced Grant to come out on his own and he was arrested without incident.
During a search of his house, Bend Police Detectives found evidence linking Grant to the incident. He's charged with Assault II, Kidnapping I, Burglary I, Menacing and Unlawful Use of a Weapon.
Anyone who may have witnessed the assault is asked to call Bend Police at 541-693-6911.
