Naked Intruder No Match For Armed Husband

posted on October 26, 2015

He wasn’t your typical intruder. Richard Dean Defeudis, 32, broke into a home in Portland, Oregon, around 3:30 a.m. and gathered together the items he planned to steal. But he didn’t stop there. He then went into a bedroom where a husband and wife were sleeping, stripped and crawled into the couple’s bed and kissed the man. 

The husband woke up to find Defeudis sitting on him and holding a knife. He pushed the intruder off him and grabbed a handgun and warned him to stop. Deufeudis then pulled on his pants and fled the house. The victim fired at him as he was fleeing. Defeudis eventually broke into another house, where police took him into custody.

Defeudis was taken to a hospital for treatment possibly related to drug use, police said. He was accused of first- and second-degree burglary, first-degree sex abuse and unlawful use of a weapon.
