(UPDATE) Three Suspects in Custody, Investigation Continuing


Redmond, OR – On Saturday, March 27, patrol officers and detectives from the Redmond Police Department successfully arrested three of the individuals suspected of a robbery that occurred earlier in the day.  The arrests came after the suspect vehicle was initially found in the Redmond Walmart parking lot.


At approximately 9:35 PM on March 27, 911 Dispatch received a call stating the robbery suspect vehicle was at the Redmond Walmart.  A Redmond officer was in the area and quickly located the car.  The car sped away from Walmart and a pursuit began. 


Redmond officers deployed Stop Sticks, which caused the vehicle’s tires to slowly deflate.  The car continued south on Highway 97, leaving the city limits, before turning west onto SW Tomahawk Ave.  The car became disabled in a field, allowing officers and Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Deputies, along with Oregon State Police Troopers, to detain and ultimately arrest three people.  No one was injured, and no force was used.


Those arrested and charged included:  

  • Abrahan Sandoval Ruiz; male, age 24, Central Oregon area resident.
    • Robbery in the First Degree, Assault in the First Degree, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Attempt to Elude a Police Officer (Felony), Attempt to Elude a Police Officer (Misdemeanor), Menacing, Criminal Mischief in the First Degree, and Reckless Driving. 
    • Ruiz also had an outstanding warrant for a parole violation – original charge of robbery and weapon use.


  • Brandon Petri; male, age 21, Bend area resident.
    • Robbery in the First Degree, Assault in the First Degree, Theft in the Third Degree, and a Parole Violation


  • Meahgan Webb; female, age 31, Madras resident.

The Redmond Police Department is continuing to investigate this incident.  Officers and Detectives still desire to speak to any business in the area of Chevron Circle K on S Hwy 97 in Redmond who may have video of this incident or any person who may know what happened.


The 27-year-old employee assaulted in the robbery is recovering, doing well at St Charles Bend.


Central Oregon is safer today because these individuals are off our streets.  This investigation, utilizing all facets of our department and in cooperation with the victims, witnesses, and area businesses, led to the successful capture of these dangerous people,” says Redmond Police Chief Dave Tarbet.


The Redmond Police Department appreciates the help provided by Deschutes County 911, Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, and the Oregon State Police.






Redmond, Oregon – On Saturday, March 27, 2021, at approximately 3:30 AM, officers from the Redmond Police Department responded to Chevron Circle K, 2005 S Highway 97, Redmond, for a reported robbery where an employee had been stabbed. 


An initial investigation determined three suspects wearing masks came into the business shortly before 3:30 AM.  The suspects confronted the female employee and attempted to gain access to the cash register, where the victim was stabbed multiple times by one of the suspects.  All three suspects left the area in an unknown vehicle.


The victim, a 27-year-old female Redmond area resident, was transported to St. Charles Redmond with serious injuries.  


This investigation is still ongoing and being investigated by detectives and patrol officers.  Information about items taken during the robbery will not be disclosed.  Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to call the Redmond Police Department, 541-693-6911.
