PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Oregon police say both an intruder and a Portland homeowner phoned 911 to report the same thing: a strange man in a home.
Lt. Kelli Sheffer says the intruder told police he had just broken into a home Monday evening when the owner arrived - and the caller was worried the homeowner might have a gun.
Accompanied by his two German Shepherds, the homeowner found the intruder and asked what he was doing in the house. That's when the stranger locked himself in a bathroom and phoned police.
The homeowner called police with his account.
Sheffer says 24-year-old Timothy James Chapek, of Portland, was booked into jail for investigation of first-degree criminal trespass.
