Intruder calls 911, afraid homeowner may have gun
- A man breaks into a house, then locks himself in the bathroom when the owner returns, police say
- The intruder makes an emergency call
- The owner also calls the police
- The suspect is arrested without incident
(CNN) — This time it was the intruder who called 911.
A man who broke into a house in Portland, Oregon, called police — afraid the homeowner may have a gun.
The suspect, Timothy James Chapek, was in the bathroom taking a shower when the homeowner returned to the house Monday night, Portland police said in a statement.
Accompanied by two German shepherds, the homeowner asked Chapek what he was doing in the house.
Chapek locked himself in the bathroom and made an emergency call, police said. He said he had broken into the house, the owner had come home, and that he was concerned the owner might have a gun.
The homeowner also called the police to report that he had found a man in the house.
Police with dogs took Chapek, 24, into custody “without incident,” they said. He was booked for criminal trespass.
They did not say if the homeowner did in fact have a gun.

I also heard on the radio that a man entered a Walgreens in Wisconsin intending to rob it, then felt bad. Turned over his knife to the cashier and waited for the police to arrive. Wow.

Haha, idiot! If you don’t want to be confronted by a homeowner trying to protect himself and his property, don’t break into someone’s house!
Someone tried to rob a gun store down the road from me a couple weeks ago. The robber had a gun… so did all the store workers. Robber said “give me the cash”, store owner grabbed his gun and said “no”. Robber quickly left. (And lost $20; he had got them to open the cash register by buying some ammo, when he realized everyone else in the store also had guns, he fled.)
