News Release
Home Invaders Arrested in Forest Park Neighborhood - 03/13/23

On March 13, 2023, at 11:23 a.m., North Precinct officers were dispatched to the 7000 Block of Northwest Skyline Boulevard on the reports of a disturbance. While officers were still enroute, they learned from dispatch that two strangers had entered the home of an elderly husband and wife. The intruders demanded that the couple leave the home, and fearing for their safety, the couple complied.

Officers arrived to find the victimized couple locked out of their home. The suspects had access to weapons stored inside the house so on-scene supervisors requested the assistance of Portland’s Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT) and Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT). The teams spent several hours securing the area and attempting to establish contact with the suspects but were ultimately unsuccessful.

SERT was able to establish the suspects’ exact positions inside the home, and they made entry. Further attempts were made to contact the suspects using robots from the Explosive Disposal Unit. The suspects continued to ignore attempts at communication. After providing ample time and opportunities for the suspects to leave the house, a SERT unit entered the house and took a man and woman into custody.

33-year-old Michael Mazzi was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center (MCDC) on the charges of Burglary in the First Degree and Coercion. Additionally, Mazzi had five warrants out of Clackamas County.

33-year-old Kerina Trabue was booked into MCDC on the charges of Burglary in the First Degree and Coercion. She also had a warrant out of Oregon City.

SERT searched the house to ensure no intruders remained inside, and the homeowners were able to safely return to their home. All roadways are now open. The Portland Police Bureau thanks community members for their patience and understanding during such incidents.
