The search continues for a suspect in a stabbing that happened Saturday afternoon in a residence near NE 6th Street and NE Innes Lane. Bend Police say Patrick Olstad, 42, was having some type of dispute with another man and apparently stabbed him in the leg and stomach. The unnamed victim was taken to the hospital with what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries. Olstad fled from the scene, and officers thought he might have gone to his own place at Alpine Meadow Apartments, which prompted a three hour standoff. Police evacuated a number of people from the building, brought in negotiators, police dogs, and swat team members. In the end, Olstad was not in the apartment, and police are still looking for him. “He was involved in an altercation with a male known to him and that male is currently in the hospital with stab wounds. And Olstad should be considered armed and dangerous. The general public does not appear to be in danger. This is a known acquaintance in an altercation between the two of them, but we would like to locate this individual.”  Bend Police Department's Lt. Brian Kindel says Olstad would probably only be dangerous if someone approached him. He is not likely to randomly seek out a victim. If you know the whereabouts of Olstad; contact Bend Police.
