A woman called 911 on Monday after she says she returned home near Coors and Montano to find 45-year-old David Ortega in her bedroom. 

She claims her teenage son chased him out. 

Police say they found Ortega after he broke into a home nearby. 

In both cases, police say the homeowners left their houses unlocked.
