PORTLAND, Ore. -- Police in Oregon say a man broke into a home in Portland to watch television.

Police say Bastrom let himself in through an unlocked front door early 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.

Authorities took Bastrom to the hospital to be treated for injuries before booking him into the Multnomah County Jail.
