Two arrested in connection to April home-invasion robbery

Police have arrested two men accused of forcing their way into a Lake Oswego home with three people inside and robbing them at gunpoint last spring.

Spensir Lee Mourey, 25, of Portland and David Ray Taylor, 56, of Eugene are accused of shouldering their way into a house on Indian Creek Way in the Bryant neighborhood, firing a gunshot into the wall and slamming resident George von Bothmer in the face with the butt of a handgun.

Lake Oswego Police Capt. Dale Jorgensen declined to identify when or how the two became suspects in the case. He said the investigation will continue, and additional arrests could be made.

Von Bothmer was treated at a local hospital for injuries he suffered during the holdup April 6. His daughter, then 17, and a friend who were also home at the time weren’t harmed.

The two robbers filled some sacks with items in the home and fled.

On Aug. 8, Portland police arrested Mourey, who was lodged at Clackamas County Jail, and the U.S. Marshals Service in Eugene arrested Taylor, who remains in jail in Lane County. Mourey faces charges of first- and second-degree robbery and unlawful use of a firearm. Taylor faces the same charges as well as another for felon in possession of a firearm and, in connection with a different case, murder, according to jail records.
