A Bend man was arrested Wednesday after police say he assaulted a co-worker with a hammer, according to police.
Officers responded to Jeld-Wen Windows and Doors after someone said an employee had assaulted another with a hammer, ran from the scene and out of the building.
Lt. Clint Burleigh said several officers responded to the scene and the suspect, 35-year-old Branden Fleming, did not comply with commands.
Officers were able to de-escalate the situation and arrested Fleming.
He was taken to the Deschutes County Jail and charged with six counts of second-degree assault.
Burleigh said Fleming hit the victim several times with the hammer and the victim suffered serious injuries.
The victim was taken to St. Charles in Bend for treatment.
