According to Brockville Police, a 50-year-old man was charged with mischief under $5,000 over the weekend after he entered a stranger’s home and fell out of a window.
Police say on June 3, the man was described to be in a panicked state, allegedly going door-to-door in a south-end neighbourhood.
The man was apparently agitated, suspected to be under the influence of some unknown substance, and seeking shelter from a possible attack.
One person allowed the agitated man into his residence, hoping to help him.
Shortly thereafter, around 3 a.m. the homeowner called the police for assistance because the man began to panic further, and allegedly caused damage to the homeowner’s property.
