A man in Placentia was arrested on suspicion of burglary Wednesday when he was caught by a homeowner taking a shower inside her residence, police said.
The suspect was identified as 39-year-old Robert Jensen, of Brawley, the Placentia Police Department said. It was not immediately clear whether he has an attorney.
Brawley allegedly broke into the home on Powell Drive about 7:30 a.m., where the homeowner awoke to the sound of running water. The intruder earlier shook a sliding door open and walked past the sleeping homeowner to take a shower, police said.
Odd news of the day
The resident ran outside and called the police.
Brawley apparently left his clothes behind in the bathroom and ran onto a nearby golf course, where he was arrested at the seventh hole on suspicion of burglary. He allegedly stolen a wallet and jacket.
