EVERETT, Wash. – A woman kept her calm and managed to get help after a convicted sex offender broke into her home, took off his clothes and entered her bathroom while she was showering last week.
Police say the suspect, Christopher Eddy, a.k.a. "Crazy" Eddy, has a long criminal history with convictions for assault, harassment and child rape.
Last Tuesday, the woman, who KING 5 News is not identifying, was taking a shower in her Everett home. Her children were upstairs.
The shower curtain moved like someone had opened the door. When the woman looked, she saw a man standing there, naked from the waist down.
The victim's friend fills in the blanks.
"(He) Escorted her into the bedroom by grabbing her wrist and when she got in there, she'd grabbed her cell phone and started dialing 911," said Aja Moore.
The victim made an excuse to go to another room. The suspect waited behind. When the victim told a 911 dispatcher what was happening, police came running.
"They tackled him in her living room and found his clothes sitting in the bushes," said Moore.
Eddy's last known address was in Marysville. Court records show that in 2004, he was convicted of raping a child, but when he got out of prison, he failed to register as a sex offender. Last January, he was convicted of failing to register and got 90 days in jail, but was let out a month early for good behavior.
Eddy is now in the Snohomish County Jail on a charge of burglary with sexual motivation. His bail is set at $1 million.
