Man faces five charges after Lake Oswego burglary incidents
After 39-year-old man Hector E. Mundt was apprehended last week for two burglary incidents in Lake Oswego, a grand jury leveled five charges on him Tuesday, Sept. 14.
Mundt was arrested the next day, Sept. 15, for first-degree burglary, first-degree attempted burglary, menacing, second-degree theft, and second-degree criminal trespassing. He was lodged at Clackamas County Jail.
Just after 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 3, police were called to a home near the 500 block of Country Club Road where a man was reported to be knocking on a door repeatedly and "not making sense."
Mundt was seen trying to enter the home through both the front and back doors. Police eventually located him walking near the intersection of Country Club Road and Country Club Court, at which point officers discovered that Mundt had an outstanding warrant for failure to appear in court on suspicion of trespassing in Beaverton. Mundt was lodged at Clackamas County Jail on that warrant while officers investigated the incident in Lake Oswego.
"During the investigation, the officer learned that Mr. Mundt had chased the caller (a 17-year-old girl) into her backyard, through a closed gate, and tried to gain entry into the back door after the caller had closed and locked it. He then went back around to the front of the house and tried to open the front door before walking away," a news release stated.
Mundt was also charged for a burglary near the 1800 block of Country Club Road earlier on the same day.
