Jesse Jones, 45
Accused of stabbing neighbor repeatedly with scissors
A La Pine man, arguing with a neighbor in the street was stabbed repeatedly by the neighbor, according to Deschutes County Sheriff’s investigators.
Deputies say Donnie Hardwick, 44, stumbled back toward his house at 16699 Wyatt Drive, bleeding from several locations on his body. He was taken to the main La Pine Fire Station where paramedics quickly rushed him to St. Charles Medical Center in Bend. He was expected to survive.
Meanwhile deputies returned to the scene of the stabbing and tried to get suspect Jesse Jones, 45, to come out and talk with them. He refused. At that point the Sheriff’s Office Special Operations Team was called in, showing up in their ominous looking military armored vehicle.
Jones came out and surrendered.
Jones was booked into the Deschutes County Jail on charges of Assault, Unlawful Use of a Weapon and violating his probation.
