Armed carjacker sought
by Cheryl McDermott

BEND, Ore. – Deputies are looking for a hitchhiker who allegedly brandished a gun at the driver and drove off with the man’s car in the Terrebonne north of Bend early Sunday morning. The crashed and abandoned vehicle was later recovered when the driver’s cell phone GPS tracking function was used to pinpoint its location in Bend.

Rhys Kalon Davis, 20, of Gresham, Oregon, picked up the hitchhiker on Highway 97 north of Highway 97, Deschutes County Sheriff’s Sgt. Chad Davis reported.

Just before 1 a.m., May 18, deputies received a report of a carjacking. Davis told deputies that when he refused to turn onto Davidson Way as the hitchhiker demanded, the suspect pointed a gun at him and forced him to stop and exit the 2007 Subaru Impreza.

The car was found crashed and abandoned at 19716 Sunshine Way in Bend about 2 a.m. by using the victims’ GPS tracking function of his cell phone, Davis said.

The suspect was described as :  a dark-skinned (possibly Latino) man in his 40s, about 5-foot 9-inches tall, wearing a red hooded flannel shirt, blue jeans, red and white bicyclist gloves.

Dark skinned male (possibly Latino), possibly in his 40’s, 5’9” in heigth, last seen wearing a red hooded flannel shirt, blue jeans, red and white bicyclist gloves, unknown weight, unknown identity.
