A man accused of a violent home invasion robbery in Vancouver has pleaded guilty.
Investigators said Adam Lewis broke into a home on May 5, 2011 and confronted one of the homeowners when she walked in.
Court documents said Lewis pointed a gun he had stolen from the home at the victim before ordering her to put on handcuffs behind her back.
The documents said he then ordered her around the house at gunpoint over the next hour asking for money and marijuana.
Investigators said Lewis stole two guns from a safe and two laptop computers and loaded it all into the woman's car, which he then attempted to steal.
At one point, according to court documents, the woman kicked Lewis in the back. He then attacked her, police said, hitting her with a speaker and a shovel.
The woman's husband then came home and Lewis pointed the gun at him, according to Vancouver police. They ended up struggling over the weapon while the woman ran out of the house yelling for someone to call 911.
The man got control of the gun and police said Lewis ran out of the home.
Lewis was arrested two days later after police said he was found trespassing in someone's backyard.
He changed his plea to guilty on Monday on charges of assault with a firearm and unlawful possession of a firearm. He previously pleading guilty to a sidebar case involving breaking into a home and attempting to steal a car on May 2, 2011.
Police said they identified him in that case because he left his wallet and cell phone behind. The wallet had a Washington state ID, along with a Clark College identification card with Lewis' name and photo.
He will now be sentenced for both cases on Dec. 14.
