A man was arrested after two women found him in their bedrooms.

Michael Wayne Spear, 43, of Portland, Oregon, faces a number of charges after he was found masturbating in strangers’ apartments.

One woman told police that she walked into her home to find a strange white man in her bedroom. He was going through her personal items, authorities said.

He was allegedly exposed and reportedly escaped when the woman threatened to call security. The same day, another woman in the same apartment building, found Spear in her apartment on Northwest 6th Avenue, touching himself, according to court documents.

The next day, Spear entered the woman’s apartment for a second time, through a front door, which was left unlocked. He began playing with himself, and offered the woman money to touch him.

The woman called police, who arrived while Spear was still in the house. When they tried to arrest him, Spear pushed officers out of the way and ran out of the house.

One officer was treated at Portland Adventist Hospital for an injury to his jaw, which occurred when Spear pushed him. He hit his face in a door frame.

Spear was charged with indecency, burglary and assaulting a public official amongst other charges. He is being held at the Multnomah County Detention Center on bail of $210,000.
