SASKATOON — Police say a man left out in the cold with nothing on but his underwear broke into a Saskatoon home and grabbed some drapes to cover up.
They say the man was taken home from a bar overnight by people he had just met, but things took a bad turn and they asked him to leave.
The residents called police and told officers the man had not wanted to go, became belligerent and was eventually forced out wearing only his underwear.
With the door locked behind him, the near-naked man took matters into his own hands and broke into a neighbour’s basement through a window.
A woman who had been sleeping there called police and told them the man had taken some drapes and wrapped himself up, robe-style, before leaving.
“I was sleeping and all of a sudden I heard these knocks on my window,” the woman told CKOM Radio on condition of anonymity. “Before I could grab my phone or anything, he broke through the window and jumped in.”
She explained that he seemed very confused when he got through the window.
“He was totally intoxicated. It was pretty bad. He was falling all over the place.”
She said the curtains the man grabbed were bright orange.
“They’re not really that pretty, but I guess if you’re freezing, they’re not too bad.”
Police say a 22-year-old man was found nearby, arrested and taken to hospital for minor injuries from breaking through a window.
He faces charges of break and enter, as well as mischief. (CKOM)
