NASELLE — Andrew A. Doan, 42, of the Naselle area was arrested Dec. 8 and remains in Pacific County Jail after bizarre alleged events in southeastern Pacific County. He is being held on charges of residential burglary with sexual motivation and criminal trespassing in the first degree.

Pacific County Sheriff’s deputies responded on Dec. 4 to a report of a possible sexual offense at a residence in the 200 block of Upper Naselle road, according to a sheriff’s office press release. The reporting party, an adult female, told deputies that a man had knocked on her door and identified himself by name. She said she recognized the man from previous contacts. He asked if he could use an electrical outlet to charge his cellular phone and she allowed him inside.

He plugged in his phone to charge and then asked to use her bathroom.

“The reporting party advised deputies that the man was in her bathroom for about a half of an hour and then he came out and sat on a chair in her living room,” the sheriff’s office said. “The reporting party stated that she was sitting on a couch next to the chair speaking with the man while he was looking at his phone. The reporting party stated that the man then suddenly exposed his penis from his pants and began to masturbate in front of her. The reporting party then told the man to leave her residence and she immediately called 911. After the man left the residence, the reporting party checked her bathroom and found that a bottle of lotion had been accessed and some of the lotion was on the floor.”

The man appeared to have been on foot with no vehicle.

Deputies conducted a thorough search for the man based on a detailed description and the name he provided — Andrew Doan.

As deputies continued to investigate, they heard from others in the neighborhood that Doan had also previously attempted to contact and gain entry to at least three other homes. In one instance, it was alleged Doan contacted another resident in the 200 block of Upper Naselle road and asked to use the phone. The adult female at that residence allowed Doan to use her phone outside on the front porch and didn’t let him into the residence. Doan had her that his vehicle was broken down nearby.

Doan then went to yet another residence in the 200 block of Upper Naselle road and opened the back door of that residence and started to enter, deputies learned. The homeowner, an adult female, was alerted to the incident by her dog barking. She reported to deputies that Doan had opened her door and had his head and one leg inside the threshold, looking around. The homeowner confronted Doan, who identified himself to her as “Drew.” She said that Doan told her that his vehicle was broken down nearby and he requested to use her phone and to charge his cellular phone. She told him that she couldn’t help him. She shut her door and assumed that Doan had left. She explained to deputies that she was getting her belongings together as she was getting ready to leave the residence. She said she turned and entered her kitchen to find that Doan had entered her residence without permission through another door. She then backed Doan out of her residence and told him again to leave, according to the sheriff’s office.

In yet another instance, Doan went to a different residence in the 200 block of Upper Naselle road. Deputies learned from that female reporting party that Doan had come to her front door asking that she give him a ride to his broken-down vehicle. This reporting party said that she knew who Doan was from previous contacts but told him that she couldn’t help him. She didn’t allow Doan inside.

Deputies continued to investigate the incidents and followed leads in an attempt to locate Doan. On Dec. 7, an off-duty deputy got a tip from a concerned citizen who had heard about the investigation. That tip led the deputy to a residence located in the 600 block of U.S. Highway 101 in the Chinook area. Deputy Eastham, with assistance from officers with the Long Beach Police Department, placed Doan under arrest at 4:47 a.m. Friday, according to the jail booking log.
