Transient Arrested for Bend Assault

BEND, OR -- A Eugene man is accused of beating up a man after leaving the Bend Warming Shelter Saturday morning. A passerby called 911 at about 7 a.m. Saturday, reporting a man was beating up another man, near Third and Dekalb. The passerby stayed with the victim and provided information to responding officers.

About 30 minutes later, police found the suspect near Wall and Newport. They say he wouldn’t provide his name and resisted arrest, causing minor injuries to two officers. After he was evaluated at the hospital, the suspect was taken to jail where he was identified as 35-year-old Corey Bjur. 

Investigators say he didn't sleep at the shelter, but showed up Saturday morning, asking for food. Bjur was kicked out after making offensive comments. The victim checked out of the facility at about the same time. Police believe Bjur followed the victim, assaulting him about a block away. He's charged with Assault II, Disorderly Conduct II and Resisting Arrest.

Anyone who may have witnessed the assault is asked to call Bend PD at 541-693-6911.
