Man arrested for knife threat
by Bend Weekly News Sources

BEND, Ore. – A 22-year old man police described as a transient was arrested Wednesday morning after he allegedly spat on the hood of a car in the library parking lot, then pulled a knife when he was confronted by the driver.


Bend Police officers were dispatched to the Bend Public Library at 601 NW Wall Street about 9:45 a.m. after 911-dispatch received a call from the alleged victim, David Ray Meddish, 40. Meddish, a Bend resident, reported that he had been threatened with a knife by a man on the sidewalk directly in front of the library, and provided to police a description of the suspect and another person who accompanied the suspect.

According to Sgt. Ron Taylor, officers located and detained both men upon arrival.

Meddish told officers he had been legally parked on NW Wall Street waiting for the library to open when the suspect, 22-year old Patrick McKinley Mills, and his friend walked by. Mills, for an unknown reason, allegedly spat on Meddish's car and didn't respond when asked why.

Meddish followed Mills and his friend to the front of the library and again asked the suspect why he had spat on his car. "At this point Mills produced a knife from his pocket and threatened Meddish with it," Sgt. Taylor said. The victim retreated to his vehicle and called 911.

Mills was arrested and transported to the Deschutes County Jail. He is charged with unlawful use of a weapon, menacing, and third-degree criminal mischief.

The second individual detained with Mills was not involved in the incident and was released, the sergeant said.
