PORTLAND, Ore. — A man is facing charges after authorities say he entered a home and tried to bite the residents as well as deputies who responded.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports (http://bit.ly/2cBnOqE ) the homeowner and his 14-year-old son were holding the 25-year-old man down on Wednesday when a Marion County Sheriff’s Office deputy arrived and called for backup.

Deputies handcuffed the man after he tried to bite them.

Authorities say the 25-year-old was trying to poke the man and his son with a screwdriver and torch.

The teen used a power grinder to hold the man off.

Both the 14-year-old and his dad were bitten and bruised.

Paramedics sedated the man and he was booked into jail upon his release from the hospital.

Authorities suspect the man was on bath salts or a narcotic.
