KEIZER, Ore. (AP) - Burglary and criminal mischief charges have been filed against a man who shaved his head after entering an Oregon couple’s home.

A man who lives at the home in Keizer tells the Statesman Journal (https://is.gd/TTtQfd ) he confronted the intruder after hearing a noise coming from the bathroom.

Rather than panic, the man tried to have a peaceful conversation with the stranger. The intruder then swept a three-bladed razor across his own head, using hand sanitizer as lubricant instead of shaving cream.

The couple eventually persuaded the man to leave. He asked the woman for a hug at the doorstep, but was denied.

Officers were able to identify the suspect, 39-year-old Eric Avila, because of the couple’s description and by his partially shaved head.
