Washington Co. Sheriff's Office

On Tuesday, July 2, 2019, at approximately 4:30 a.m., Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a report of a man entering a 7-year-old girl’s bedroom window at the CourtYards at Springville apartments. This is in the 17000 block of NW Springville Road in the Bethany area of unincorporated Washington County.

The father of the girl woke up to the sounds of his daughter screaming. When he arrived to her bedroom, he saw a man crawling out of her window. The father ran out the front door and saw the man running away. The man was wet and appeared to have just left a nearby hot tub.

Responding deputies located a wallet on a plastic chair near the hot tub and were able to identify its owner as 30-year-old Kord Knudsen, also a resident of the apartment complex. Several articles of his clothing were also found along the way.

Mr. Knudsen admitted to having alcohol and marijuana prior to the incident.

Mr. Knudsen was arrested on charges of burglary in the second degree and criminal mischief in the second degree.
