The burglar doesn't rob his victims — he watches pornography on their computers, cops said.

An Oregon man has burglarized multiple homes — not to steal, but to watch pornography on victims' computers, police said.

Antone Owens of Eugene has been arrested and charged with menacing, coercing and burglary, NBC affiliate NewsSource 16 reported.

The 21-year-old even left lubricant and towels next to the computers in some cases, according to police.

An investigation began after a rash of suspicious break-ins near Owens' home, NewsSource 16 reported.

Last fall, one homeowner reported that an intruder had entered her home and watched pornography on her computer multiple times, NewsSource 16 reported.

In a separate incident, one homeowner's son awoke to find the intruder in his bedroom.

In March, another woman said she arrived home to find lubricant, towels, a cell phone and porn on her computer monitor. As she called 911, she saw a man outside her glass door. She said he threatened to break the door and kill her before he pulled on the lock, came inside, snatched back his lubricant and cell phone and ran away.

Cops are looking for further information on the break-ins and are asking other alleged victims to step forward.
