Bend man arrested on assault charges after alleged fight at apartment complex


A Bend man was arrested Saturday on assault charges after an alleged fight at an apartment complex, according to police.

Sgt. Wes Murphy said officers responded to the Awbrey Pines Condos just after 12 p.m. on a report of a physical domestic dispute.

When officers arrived, they learned the victim had been taken to the hospital by a friend and the suspect, 43-year-old Brandon Chadbourne was in the apartment.

Officers contacted the victim and were able to develop probable cause to arrest Chadbourne, who also had an active warrant for failing to appear in court on separate assault, menacing and harassment charges.

Murphy said officers tried to contact Chadbourne at the apartment but nobody answered the door.

Police obtained a search warrant and came back later that afternoon, but nobody was in the apartment. Murphy said other evidence was obtained during the search.

Just before 6 p.m. officers learned Chadbourne had returned to the apartment; a CERT Team Crisis Negotiator contacted him on the phone and he surrendered without incident.

Chadbourne was arrested on second-degree assault charges, unlawful use of a weapon and the charges related to his warrant.
