PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portland police said they arrested two people suspected to have been involved in multiple overnight burglaries in northeast Portland Friday morning.

The Portland Police Bureau said they received a call around 2:30 a.m. from a woman who said someone was inside her home at the 4600 block of Northeast 109th Avenue.

The woman told police that she heard someone coming through her mother’s bedroom window and then heard her mother cry out. She believed her mother was being robbed.

Officers said they were quickly able to get to the house and arrest one suspect who attempted to leave through the front door.

A second suspect tried to escape through a window but was arrested shortly after, according to PPB.

Both suspects are black men in their teens or early 20’s. They are booked in the Multnomah County Jail.

Officials said they believe the men are responsible for at least three other burglaries in the area during the night.

Evidence suggests the suspects were able to get into the homes through windows left open due to the heat.

Officers would like to remind homeowners to mindful about keeping windows open during hot weather and to when possible lock all doors and windows during the night or while out of the house.
