REDMOND, OR -- A Sisters-area man is accused of assaulting three people, Tuesday morning, including a security guard at St. Charles Redmond. He allegedly attacked two other people in northwest Redmond before he was caught. The hospital went into lock-out for about 45 minutes after the initial altercation.
St. Charles Spokesperson Lisa Goodman says it all started just before 7 a.m., "The gentleman came into the facility looking for someone. And, when he couldn’t find them, he became agitated, at which point the security guard did confront him and there was an altercation." The security guard suffered minor injuries, and property was damaged during the assault. "The lockout was cleared at about 7:30 a.m. after he left the facility," Goodman tells KBND News, "But, as a precaution, we did limit public access to our Emergency Department and main entrances and posted security guards in both places until about 9 a.m., when Redmond Police were able to apprehend this gentleman." Police identified the suspect as 37-year-old Scott Bulloch.
At about 9:30 a.m., officers responded to NW 17th and Jackpine for a physical dispute where witnesses reported a man had assaulted and strangled a woman. When police arrived, they discovered it was the man suspected in the hospital incident. Investigators say Bulloch approached a garbage truck driver and asked to use her phone. After the call, a family member arrived and was subsequently assaulted. The truck driver tried to intervene and was also attacked. When she retreated to her garbage truck, investigators say Bulloch tried to get into the vehicle through the driver's window, hitting and slapping at the woman.
Bulloch was arrested, placed into a WRAP restraint and taken back to St. Charles Redmond for evaluation. As of Wednesday morning, he had not yet been booked into jail. He faces numerous charges, including multiple counts of Assault, Trespass, Coercion and Resisting Arrest. Drug use is believed to have been a factor.
