2 men arrested after homeowner has car towed

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A Portland man fed up with one car blocking his driveway had it towed. What happened next landed two young men in jail, police said.

It all started a week ago when the homeowner noticed a black BMW parked in front of his house along Northeast 18th Avenue, police said. The car was partially blocking his driveway.

The homeowner told police that he left a note on the car asking the driver not to block his driveway. Then on Thursday night, the same BMW was parked in front of the man's house again blocking his driveway, police said. So, the homeowner called police and had the car towed.

The homeowner told police that one of the suspects, Mitchell Asa, came up to his house later in the evening and demanded to know where the car was. The homeowner told Asa the car had been towed and he needed to call police for more information.

Another man, Marcus Forest-Cooper, started assaulting the homeowner and forced his way into the man's home, police said. The homeowner had a cordless drill in his hand and hit one of the suspects in the arm with a drill bit, police said.

Both Asa and Forest-Cooper and two other men ran away as police arrived, investigators said.

All four men had parked in the area to attend the monthly Last Thursday event along Northeast Alberta Street, police said.

Asa and Cooper were arrested and now face burglary and assault charges. They're scheduled to be arraigned next Tuesday. One of the two other men that was with them has not been found. The other man has not been charged.
