PORTLAND, Ore. A man was arrested after police entered an apartment in southeast Portland where they could hear a woman calling for help.

Officers were dispatched about 3 a.m. Monday to a burglary call in the 16000 block of Southeast Stark Street. After arriving they learned the suspect was inside an apartment with the resident.

The suspect reportedly had gone into the apartment through an unlocked door. One of two residents in the apartment confronted the suspect, telling him to leave.

He refused and that resident left, contacting someone to ask to use a phone to call 911 and to get help for the woman still in the apartment.

During that time, the other resident was reportedly sexually assaulted, police said. After police arrived, the suspect was arrested without incident.

Damascus L. Menefee, 39, was accused of first-degree rape, burglary and trespass. He also was accused of second-degree strangulation, fourth-degree assault and was in violation of parole for first-degree burglary.

Police declined to release further information due to the sensitive nature of the crimes but added that stranger-to-stranger sexual assaults are rare.:confused:

PORTLAND, Ore. Portland police are reminding residents to lock their doors at night after two suspects in three days entered Southeast Portland homes through unlocked doors and sexually assaulted women inside.

The two cases are not connected, police say.

"It appears both the incidents were stranger on stranger," said Portland Police Sgt. Chris Burley. "Not common but still it's important for us to talk about that in both incidents the suspects made entry through an unlocked door."

Early Wednesday morning, Joseph W. Green Jr., 30, entered a home in the 2700 block of Southeast 17th Avenue through an unlocked door around 12:50 a.m. Wednesday, according to police. Both residents of the home were asleep.

Green attacked and raped one of the residents, a 76-year-old woman, police said. The other resident, the woman's daughter, who was upstairs, woke up and fought Green off until he left the home.

"I couldn't think of anything but getting down there and attacking whoever was attacking my mom," said Ingrid Renan, the victim's daughter.

The residents called 911, and responding officers found Green near Southeast 15th Avenue and Clay Street. They took him into custody without further incident and brought him to the Multnomah County Jail. Green faces charges of first-degree rape, strangulation, fourth-degree assault and burglary.

The victim, Barbara Stross, spoke to KGW's Mike Benner. She said the attack "felt like an eternity."

"I felt something on the bed and thought for a minute an animal got in and jumped on the bed," she said. "It's scary but we're lucky [my daughter] was home and heard me."

Note: KGW doesn't usually name the victims of sexual assault, but in this case the victim chose to release her name and speak about the incident with KGW.
