PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A man who broke into a northwest Portland home took off all his clothes, climbed into bed with a sleeping couple and kissed one of the victims before he ran away and was caught by officers in another home, according to police.

Portland police responded to the report of a burglary on the 2700 block of Northwest Quimby Street at 3:40 a.m. Thursday.

Police said the suspect, identified as 32-year-old Richard Defeudis, broke into the home and started gathering items inside.

Investigators said he then removed all his clothes and got into bed with a man and woman, and kissed the man.

The man woke up to the suspect sitting on top of him holding a knife, according to police. Officers said the victim pushed Defeudis off of him and then grabbed his handgun.

The victim told the suspect to stop, but investigators said Defeudis put his pants on and ran out of the home.

The victim chased Defeudis and fired three shots toward him, according to police. Defeudis was not hit and continued to run away.

Police said he was eventually caught after breaking into a nearby vacant house.

Defeudis was taken to the hospital for treatment of possible drug use and then booked in the Multnomah County Jail on charges of burglary, sex abuse and unlawful use of a weapon.

The victim was not injured and is not expected to face any charges for firing his gun, according to police.
