A 34-year-old Redmond transient was arrested Oct. 6 after allegedly attempting to enter a vehicle with two young children inside in the parking lot at the Redmond Grocery Outlet at 798 NW 5th St., according to a Redmond Police news release.
The father of the children, a 4-year-old boy and 3-year-old girl who were both seat-belted in the back seat, noticed a man he considered suspicious, identified as Jeremy Dubisar, watching what the father was doing, police said. The father asked Dubisar if he needed something and Dubisar said he didn’t, police said.
The father locked the car doors and walked to the rear passenger door to check on his daughter, when Dubisar tried to open the driver’s door, police said. Dubisar, who was on post-prison supervision after being convicted of kidnapping, walked away after being confronted, but was contacted by police after they were called by a Grocery Outlet employee, police said.
Dubisar, who appeared to be under the influence of a controlled substance, reached toward an officer’s waistband while Dubisar was being checked for weapons, police said. Dubisar then resisted officers as they tried to control him, and he was placed in a restraining device, police said.
Dubisar was taken to Deschutes County jail facing two charges each of second-degree disorderly conduct, attempted kidnapping and assault on a peace officer, and single charges of a parole violation, attempted unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, attempted unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle and resisting arrest, police said.
Anyone with information or recordings of the incident is asked to call police dispatch at 541-693-6911.
