Vancouver Police say a resident was shocked to find a naked man had broken into his home Tuesday night, and was in his kitchen, cooking eggs. Turns out, he had previously taken a shower in the man’s home as well.
At about 7 p.m. the east Vancouver resident found the naked man and confronted him, but the stranger fled from the home.
Police arrested man a short distance away.
The 30-year-old Burnaby man was apparently in the Vancouver man’s home for about 20 to 25 minutes.
Charges of being unlawfully in a dwelling house have been requested.
Police are reminding people to lock their doors and windows. Warmer weather is here and more people will be spending time outdoors, and leaving windows and doors open to stay cool.
There have been 1157 residential break-and-enters in Vancouver so far this year, and the Vancouver Police Department is hoping that homeowners stay vigilant, particularly since 400 of these break-ins show no signs of forced entry.
“Ensuring your doors and windows are locked is a simple deterrent,” says Constable Brian Montague. “Don’t make it easy for someone to break-in to your house.”
