Attempted Armed Robbery Suspect Arrested At Bend Hotel

BEND, OR -- A Bend man, believed to be involved in an attempted armed robbery last week, was arrested early Tuesday morning. Bend Police had been searching for 38-year-old Ethan Christensen since January 10 and offered a reward for information on his whereabouts. 

At around 1:15 a.m., BPD learned Christensen was staying at the Home2 Suites hotel near 27th and Bear Creek Dr. in Bend. The Central Oregon Emergency Response Team activiated and officers took Christensen into custody without incident. 

The search began after a man reported being the victim of an attempted robbery at a Bend car wash, late on January 9. He told police he stopped to clear snow from his truck and was approached by two men who demanded his wallet and money. One man had a gun. The three fought before the victim was able to drive away.
