SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- A North Bend man was arrested Monday night, accused of committing a robbery in Springfield.

Police responded to the Fred Meyer on Q Street just after 9 p.m. where they say Dallas Bennett, 22, put a victim in a chokehold, robbed them, and fled before authorities arrived.

Officers began searching for the suspect when they were approached by an area resident who told them he had surveillance footage of the suspect running by their house.

Authorities were able to narrow down their search to the area of 8th and R streets. Police dog Nord helped officials locate Bennett, who was reportedly hiding in the 800 block of R Street.

Authorities said they identified Bennet by the tattoos on his hand, which read "Self Care."

The Oregon State Police assisted with the search for Bennett. He was taken into custody without incident.
