A New York man was arrested for breaking into a home and trying to shower with a female resident, before making his way to the kitchen to wash the dishes.
Police in New Jersey received a call Wednesday morning about a burglary in progress at a Hackensack home.
Sheena Diaz, who was home at the time of the bizarre incident with her sister and baby nephew, told authorities she was in the shower when someone walked into the bathroom.
Sheena thought it was her sister, Mikah Diaz, but when she peeked around the curtain she saw a man disrobing and trying to get in the shower with her.
She said she ran from the bathroom and locked herself in a bedroom where Mikah and their 1-year-old nephew were playing.
“She was panicking. She was crying,” Mikah told NBC 4.
Sheena then called police to report the crime.
Authorities said the intruder, identified as James King of Queens, didn’t leave the house after Sheena bolted from the bathroom.
He, instead, made his way to the kitchen and started washing dirty dishes left in the sink.
When authorities arrived, a naked King was standing in the kitchen and allegedly told officers he was the family’s caretaker. The girls said they had never seen him before.
King was led from the home in handcuffs — and clothes — and charged with burglary and lewdness.
The girls said King never stole anything from the home, and they believe he climbed through a window because all the doors to the home were locked.
At LEAST nothing violent happened.
