BEND, OR -- A Bend man faces multiple charges after allegedly threatening a road crew then breaking into a southeast Bend business, early Wednesday morning.


Bend Police say officers first responded to the area of SE Third and Reed Market Road at about 3 a.m., after witnesses reported a man was harassing a city road construction crew, slapping his waistband and screaming that he had a gun. While police searched the area, another call came in from Cathy's Cleaners at Third and Vine Lane. A man matching the same description had reportedly shattered a glass front door and stole items from inside. 


Eventually, investigators found 33-year-old Brian Kennedy, who matched the suspect description from both incidents. They say he was confronted by a cleaning crew at Cathy's Express Eco Laundromat, but refused to leave. He allegedly threw rocks at them to escape.


Kennedy is charged with Burglary, Robbery, Theft, Attempted Assault, Menacing, Criminal Mischief and Disorderly Conduct.
