A teenager is in custody after allegedly stabbing a friend multiple times during an argument early Saturday morning, police said.

Andrew Rosston, 18, of Bend, is being held at the Deschutes County jail on charges of first degree assault, a felony, and unlawful use of a weapon. His bail was set at $100,000.

Rosston and his roommate, Peter Ruch, 20, of Bend, were walking along College Way near the Central Oregon Community College campus about 3:15 a.m. Saturday, according to a press release from Bend Police Lt. Jason Maniscalco. Rosston and Ruch began an argument that escalated to the point where police say Rosston stabbed Ruch in the hand with a knife. Then they continued walking to their home in the 1600 block of NW Newport Avenue, Maniscalco said.

The two men continued arguing once they reached their home, however, and Rosston allegedly stabbed Ruch a second time, Maniscalco said.

Ruch was taken by ambulance to St. Charles Bend. Police did not release his condition.

The cause of the argument has not been identified yet, Maniscalco said.
