Monday morning, the Bend Police Department was contacted by U.S. Marshals.  They told them they believed 36 year old Dedigamage Perera was currently in the Bend area.  He was wanted in Idaho for aggravated assault and strangulation.


His vehicle was located in the 3rd Street Safeway parking lot.


U.S. Marshals said that Perera was a violent offender and was armed with a handgun, so a SWAT team responded to the scene.


Perera was taken into custody without incident.
