POLICE IN OREGON say a man broke into a home in Portland to watch television.

The Oregonian reports that 32-year-old Jason Leon Bastrom faces charges of criminal trespass after the homeowner called police.

Police say Bastrom let himself in through an unlocked front door early on Sunday and sat down on the couch to watch television.

They say the homeowner alerted authorities, and then sent over a family member who lived nearby.

Authorities say the family member confronted Bastrom and struck him in the head, knocking him unconscious. Bastrom was taken to the hospital to be treated for injuries before booking him into the Multnomah County Jail.
