Bow & Arrow Threat Prompts Bend Hotel Lockdown

BEND, OR -- A Bend man was arrested Thursday morning after police say he threatened to kill someone behind the Best Western Plus on Grandview Drive. The hotel, near the northern city limits, went into lockdown and officers responded at about 10:25 a.m. 

People camping in the area of Clausen Drive reported the 54-year-old victim and Dalyn Albert Olsen had been arguing, and the victim reportedly threatened Olsen. Police believe 36-year-old Olsen, who lives in an encampment in the area, returned to his camp, retrieved a bow and arrow, and returned to the scene of the verbal altercation. Olsen then pointed the bow and arrow at the victim and threatened him, before returning to his encampment.  

Bend Police took Olsen into custody without incident and recovered the bow and arrow. He was transported to the Deschutes County Jail on charges of menacing, unlawful use of a weapon and second-degree disorderly conduct.
