BEND, OR -- Bend Police responded to a report of an assault on a woman and a motorhome on fire in a homeless camp on Hunnell Road near Cooley early yesterday morning. Sgt. Rob Emerson says 36-year-old Misty Andresen  had allowed a neighboring acquaintance, 32-year-old Elizabeth Butler, to spend the night in her Winnebago since it was going to be cold and Butler only had a tent.  Andresen woke up around 3:00 a.m. to smoke.  She found a blanket on fire and went to throw it out of the motorhome. That’s when she was struck multiple times from behind with a baseball bat, allegedly by her house guest.  Later, another officer later came across Butler at 3rd and Empire beating on a parked car with a baseball bat and placed her into custody. Andresen told police she had no idea why Butler attacked her and burned down her home. It’s believed drugs are a factor in this incident.
