A Florida man allegedly broke into a Vero Beach home, only to make himself a bowl of spaghetti and walk around naked, all in the presence of the home's terrified 70-year-old resident.
Samit Irving, 29, allegedly broke into the woman’s home on Monday evening, according to an arrest affidavit. At the time, Irving was already wanted by the Indian River County Sheriff's Office on an outstanding warrant for attempting to evade capture, for giving a false name while detained, resisting arrest with violence and violating probation in a cocaine possession case, according to WJXX in Jacksonville.
"Don't say anything. The police are after me and are outside right now. I can't leave," Irving allegedly told the elderly resident as he entered her home, according to WJXX. The woman later told police that Irving put a pot on her stove and started to boil water. He made himself a bowl of spaghetti and then freshened up in her bathroom. He also made himself very comfortable, walking around the house fully nude, the woman said.
The woman told police that she was frozen with fear at first, but at at some point she made got to the door, made a run for it and flagged down a deputy. When she ran, Irving did too. He was found and arrested in a nearby in a wooded area.
Irving has been charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling, exposure of sexual organs, petty theft and resisting arrest without violence. He’s being held without bail, according to online police records.
The spaghetti was the only item reported stolen in the break-in.
Irving allegedly tried to tell police that he ate spaghetti and bathed at a friend’s home and that he didn’t break in. However, he couldn’t recall the name of the friend or how they met. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer who can speak on his behalf at this time. According to jail records, Irving works as a laborer.
