BISMARCK, N.D. (KXNET) — A Bismarck family was awakened in the middle of the night to an intoxicated and naked man entering their home and trashing their daughter’s bedroom early this morning.
According to an arresting affidavit, police responded to the home around 2:56 a.m. for a report of a burglary. Upon arrival, officers found the homeowner holding a naked man at gunpoint in their entryway closet.
Police then spoke to the homeowners who said they were upstairs in bed and woke up to loud banging noises coming from downstairs. The homeowner then grabbed his gun and went to investigate and found a naked man in the entryway of their home. The homeowners then called 911.
The couple stated that they found that the back door had been left unlocked prior to them going to bed. They also showed police the damage the man had caused, destroying a shoe rack in their entryway closet, and clothes and toys thrown around their daughter’s bedroom for about $200 worth of damage.
They also stated that there was a lot of foot traffic going to a house near them and believed that was where the man was trying to go, but went into their home by mistake.
