Police responded to a residence in southwest Portland on Monday evening after a man called 911 to report that he just broke into the residence and that the owner arrived home.

The caller told 911 that he was concerned that the homeowner might have a gun.

When the homeowner arrived home, the suspect was in the bathroom taking a shower. The homeowner, accompanied by his two German shepherds, asked the suspect what he was doing in the house and the suspect then locked himself in the bathroom and called 911.

The homeowner also called 911 and told the dispatcher that he found a man in his house.

Officers from Central Precinct along with a K-9 unit responded to the residence and took the suspect into custody without incident.

The suspect, 24-year-old Timothy James Chapek of southwest Portland, was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on a charge of first-degree criminal trespass.
