Bend man accused of threatening another with gun


A 21-year-old Bend man was arrested early Monday in a raid on his northeast Bend apartment, accused of threatening a 19-year-old with a gun at a southeast Bend home early Sunday, police said.

Police responded around midnight early Sunday to a residence on Southeast Brentwood Avenue for a reported dispute, Lt. Jason Maniscalco said. All of those involved were gone before officers arrived.

Police were contacted a short time later by a 19-year-old Bend man who said a man identified as Dahnte Nathaniel Cegers, 21, of Bend, threatened him with a handgun during an altercation at the residence. No injuries were reported.

Police obtained a search warrant for Cegers’ apartment at the Stonebriar Apartments on Highway 20, Maniscalco said.

Police officers and detectives, joined by members of the Central Oregon Emergency Response Team, raided the apartment around 2 a.m. and arrested Cegers without incident. Two other apartment occupants were contacted and later released.

A search of the apartment revealed some evidence sought in the search warrant, but no handgun was found, Maniscalco said.

Cegers was taken to the Deschutes County Jail and booked on charges of unlawful use of a weapon, menacing, felon in possession of a firearm and recklessly endangering. He was held without bail on a probation violation.

In 2017, court records show, Cegers pleaded no contest to second-degree burglary and third-degree assault and was sentenced to five days in jail and three years probation. He was one of three men accused of burglarizing a home on Porcupine Drive in southwest Bend and injuring a victim
