Redmond Police Department Utilizes Armored Rescue Vehicle to Arrest Barricaded Female (Photo) - 02/20/24

Redmond, OR – The Redmond Police Department responded to the Shepherds House, 1350 S. Hwy 97, at approximately 6:12 a.m. today to investigate a dispute. Upon arrival officers learned a 49-year-old female attempted to strike other individuals on scene with a vehicle and threatened to arm herself with a hammer to assault others.  

As officers sought to contact the female, she attempted to flee the area. STOP sticks were successfully deployed and the vehicle was contained to the parking lot and then blocked by law enforcement. The female then barricaded herself in the vehicle and refused officer commands to surrender. CERT (Central Oregon Emergency Response Team) negotiators were called on scene but were unable to gain compliance from the female and pepper spray was deployed inside the car. After further negotiations the female was taken into custody without further incident.   

Redmond Police would like to thank Redmond Fire and Rescue for their assistance. The 49-year-old Redmond resident was lodged at the Deschutes County Jail on charges of Attempted Assault II, Assault IV, Reckless Driving, Elude and Resisting Arrest.
