PORTLAND, Ore. — Police say a man broke into a Portland home early Sunday morning to sit on a couch and watch TV.

The Oregonian reports officers arrested 32-year-old Jason Leon Bastrom before 8 a.m. Bastrom was treated an area hospital to be treated for injuries he suffered when a family member of the homeowner punched him. He was then booked into Multnomah County Jail on charges of criminal trespass in the first degree.

Police say Bastrom let himself in through an unlocked front door and sat down on the couch to watch television. After calling 911, the homeowner called a family member who lived nearby.
