BEND, OR -- A Bend Police officer was allegedly assaulted by a theft suspect, Thursday night. Authorities say police responded to a report of a naked, intoxicated man who had fallen in the parking lot of the 7-Eleven at 8th and Greenwood, just after 10:30 p.m. Officers detained 35-year-old Tony Williams in handcuffs after a brief theft investigation. 

 

They discovered a 10-inch kitchen knife in his waistband and, they say, at that point, he became uncooperative and kicked an officer in her head. Others worked to control the suspect who they say actively resisted arrest by flailing around and trying to pull away. He was eventually restrained with the "WRAP" system and transported to jail.

 

The WRAP restraint device is designed to immobilize a person safely, in police custody. 


Williams is accused of third degree Theft, Resisting Arrest, Assaulting an Officer, Interfering with Police, Harassment and Attempted Unlawful Use of a Weapon.
