HOOD RIVER, Ore. – On May 10, 2022, at about 1:40 p.m., deputies were dispatched to the 1200 block of Tucker Rd. on the report of a burglary that had just occurred.  Upon arrival, an 89-year-old female resident at the location reported that a male subject had threatened her with a weapon and forced his way into her residence.  Once inside, the man bound the woman to a chair while burglarizing her residence.  The suspect left the woman bound and went to an adjacent unoccupied residence, forcibly entering and burglarizing it.  After the suspect left the area, the victim was able to free herself.
