A man allegedly broke into a New Jersey home Wednesday and attempted to get into the shower with one of the residents.
CBS New York reports two sisters, ages 16 and 21, and their baby nephew were at home, when a man broke in around 9 a.m.
Mikah Diaz, 16, said her sister, who was showering, ran from the bathroom, telling Diaz that someone had broken into the home. According to CBS New York, she told Diaz that he had taken off his clothes as she screamed at him to get out, while hiding behind the shower curtain.
"She runs into the room with only her towel on, and she's on the phone with the police," Diaz said. "She told me there's a guy in the house.”
The two sisters and their nephew hid out in a bedroom until police arrived. The intruder also waited for authorities. He was found by police washing dishes in the home’s kitchen. The burglar claimed he was a caretaker for the family. He has been identified as James King of Queens, NY. He faces burglary and lewdness charges, according to PIX11.
"It could've been a lot worse from what I know about the individual. Obviously, there's something wrong with him. He's standing in the kitchen waiting for the police to come," family member George Balin said.
