Man breaks into house to take a shower, then calls 911
PORTLAND, Oregon (Reuters) - Police have arrested a man accused of breaking into a woman's house in Portland to take a shower, then calling emergency 911 out of fear that the returning homeowner might be armed.
The startled homeowner, Hilary MacKenzie, walked into her house on Monday evening to find the intruder, Timothy Chapek, 24, holed up in her bathroom, according to a police report and recordings of their respective 911 calls released on Tuesday.
Chapek, apparently fearful of a violent confrontation, called 911 even before MacKenzie did.
"I just broke into a house, and the owners came home," he frantically tells the emergency operator. "I think they have guns."
With the sound of her dogs barking in the background, MacKenzie can be heard demanding to know who is in her shower, and Chapek shouts his real name through the door. He also claims that he was "kidnapped."
Having just returned from the grocery story, MacKenzie then retreats back outside to the front porch to place her own 911 call. In the ensuing conversation, she complains of being cold and suggests she might run back in to retrieve her coat, but the dispatcher tells her to stay put and wait for police.
Officers arriving on the scene moments later took Chapek into custody without incident. The police report says nothing else seemed to be amiss in the home and that Chapek told officers "he was taking a shower and nothing more."

He must have been trying to make a clean getaway.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army
