EUGENE, Ore. - The woman came home to find her computer on, displaying pornography.

Nearby, she found lubricant, towels and a cell phone.

As she picked up the cell phone, she saw a man standing outside her rear sliding glass door. She called 911 as the man shouted at her, threatening to break the door.

He managed to open the door and stormed inside, threatening to kill the woman as he grabbed the phone and lube before fleeing the home at Van Buren and 22nd.

That was March 20, 2012.

A little over a month later, a man came home during the noon hour to find a man in his home. The man fled out the back bedroom as the resident called police. They found the computer on with pornography on display and towels nearby.

As neighbors started to talk, more and more Friendly Street Neighborhood residents reported incidents to police. Residents of a Polk Street home reported multiple breakins between Sept. 20, 2011, and Oct. 20, 2011, where someone entered the home to surf porn sites on the home computer.

Police arrested a 21-year-old man Wednesday in connection with the breakins. Antone Forrest Deedward Owens was booked on four counts of first degree burglary, one count of menacing and one count of coercion.

Police asked anyone who has experienced a similar breakin or knows anything about the case to call Detective Chris Vreim at (541) 682-5192.
