David Dunbar - Repeat Sex Offender - Up to his old tricks

A woman got an alarming wake up when she got out of bed to find a registered sex offender in her living room.

When Kathryn Gonzalez discovered a man in her home, she thought, "Oh my God, I woke up just now and there's a guy in my living room, there's a guy in my living room!"

"Just to come out of the bathroom and have someone staring at you like that? It's really uneasy," Gonzalez said.

The intruder had climbed into her Granite Street home through the living room window before 6 a.m. Saturday.

"When he came to me he started moving, like a vampire, he moved his arm over, I saw a box cutter," Gonzalez described.

She screamed to her boyfriend who was asleep in the bedroom.

The man ran out of the house, and Gonzalez called 911.

While she was on the phone with police, she noticed the man outside looking at her through the window.

"I have no idea why but he came back telling me he meant no harm by it. How can you mean no harm by breaking into somebody's house and attacking their girl with a knife?" her boyfriend said.

Just when he came back, officers arrived.

They arrested the man, 40-year-old David Dunbar, who is a registered level three sex offender.

Dunbar also happened to be the boyfriend's co-worker at Labor Ready.

He has been convicted of past crimes including two counts of indecent assault or battery on a child under fourteen-years-old. He was also arrested in 2007, accused of breaking into a woman's home and trying to rape her.

He now faces a set of charges that Kathryn Gonzalez hopes will put him behind bars for good, "I want him to go away, he needs to go to jail. He needs to learn his lesson, you just don't come here and scare people."

Dunbar will be arraigned on Monday.
