PRINEVILLE, OR -- A Prineville man faces multiple charges after a weekend home invasion. Prineville Police say 30-year-old Kevin Hurley broke into a home near Northwest Fourth Street, at about 2:30 a.m., Saturday.

 

Marla Howard says it was her house. She recounted the ordeal at Saturday’s pro-Second Amendment rally in Redmond, telling the crowd she wished she'd had a firearm. "My dogs, who are rescue dogs, alerted me very well; I’ve never heard anything out of their mouths, the way they growled. The perpetrator broke through my front door, violently. He ran into my daughter’s room and broke her door, violently." Howard went on to describe how the man then entered her own bedroom and climbed on top of her, "I had no idea what his intentions were, I just knew that all of a sudden this tough girl wasn’t so tough, no more. I did happen to sleep with my blow dryer that evening. So, in the dark, I aimed my blow dryer at this perpetrator, who thought it was a gun." She says he then ran off, chased by her dog. 
 
Prineville Police located Hurley outside the house and handcuffed him. They say he tried to run but only took a few steps before being stopped by officers. One officer's hand was hurt during Hurley's alleged attempted escape, although it didn't require medical attention. 
 
Investigators say Hurley did not know the victim and may have been under the influence of drugs. He's charged with Burglary 1, Assaulting a Public Safety Officer, Resisting Arrest, Escape 3 and Criminal Mischief 2.
