EUGENE, Ore. – A man was arrested Thursday after a home invasion caused a family to barricade themselves.
Police said suspect Devin Frazer, 29, entered a home in the area of 18th Avenue and Polk Street at about 2:30 a.m. and got into bed with a child.
The child then alerted their parents to the intruder.
Initially, the caller reported they believed the man was having a mental issue and that he was not acting violently but later said that the trespasser was becoming aggressive.
Police said officers responding to the scene found Frazer in the living room. He was somewhat compliant and was making incoherent statements, they said.
Frazer was taken into custody and was found to have a large knife hidden in his pants. He was charged with criminal trespass.
In 2019, Frazer and a woman were taken into custody after a burglary at Willamette Christian School. They were accused threatening employees with “bladed objects" inside the church. Frazer was convicted and sentenced to a year and a half.
