On Monday evening, March 7, 2011, at about 7 PM, Portland Police responded to a residence in the 2700 block of Southwest Rutland Terrace after a subject called 9-1-1 to report that he just broke into the residence and that the owner arrived home. The caller told 9-1-1 that he was concerned that the homeowner might have a gun.

The homeowner arrived home and found the suspect inside the house and the suspect was in the bathroom taking a shower. The homeowner, along with 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 9-1-1. The homeowner also called 9-1-1 and told the call-taker 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 for Criminal Trespass in the First Degree.
