Bend Man Wanted For Attempted Robbery

BEND, OR -- Bend Police looking for an attempted robbery suspect are asking for the public’s help. Investigators say the victim parked at a northeast Bend car wash late last Tuesday to clear snow off his truck. Two other men approached  - one with a gun - and demanded his wallet. They fought before the victim was able to drive away.

Police believe 38-year-old Ethan Christensen is one of the suspects. On Thursday, an officer tried to pull Christensen's car over on Arizona Ave., but he sped into oncoming traffic. The driver ditched the car at Farewell Bend Park. Officers set up a perimeter and searched the area, but Christensen wasn't found. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Bend PD through non-emergency dispatch (541-693-6911). You may be eligible for a cash reward.
