A homeless man in Oregon already arrested twice in one day was taken into custody a third time after he allegedly went on to attack a woman as she showered in her home, police said.
On Feb. 16, police in Corvallis arrested 29-year-old Garrett W. Caspino III after two separate incidents but officers had to let him go on both occasions due to COVID-19 restrictions that prevented them from holding him, Fox News reported.
In the first incident, a caller phoned police shortly before 11 a.m. and said Caspino was sitting in the driver's seat of their unlocked vehicle and appeared to be “totally out there.” Officers arrested Caspino for criminal trespass, and he was issued a citation and released.
A short time later, police said, Caspino was charged again with criminal trespassing and let go after he was found in a restricted parking area of the Law Enforcement Center.
Around an hour and a half after his second release, officials said, Caspino entered a home, where a woman was showering while her boyfriend slept.
“The victim reported the male pulled his pants down to his knees, while opening the shower door,” police said in a report.

When the victim attempted to get away from Caspino, he allegedly grabbed her by the shoulders, shoved her into the wall and began to strangle her, the report states.
As the woman fought off Caspino, her boyfriend woke up to her screams.
When the man rushed to the bathroom, police said, “he saw the male suspect standing over the victim who was laying on the floor” and confronted the suspect, who then fled.
Caspino was picked up by officers a short time later and was being held in the Benton County jail on a $750,000 bond.
