A women at home alone was terrified when she heard someone having a shower in her house.
Police later found a red-faced neighbour who was so drunk that he went into the house because he thought it was his own.
“He was very apologetic,” Superintendent Daniel Shean told the Northern Territory News.
The man got lost on the way to his house in Katherine on Wednesday night.
He walked into the home and took a shower in an attempt to sober up. The 34-year-old householder was asleep upstairs.
She woke up, heard the water running and frantically rang the police.
When officers arrived, they found the 42-year-old sitting on the woman’s verandah – dressed again.
He said “sorry” to the police and woman many times after realising his mistake.
I’m assuming the door was unlocked, there is no mention of a break in, she was very lucky it wasn’t someone who was out to attack her. Still it is a funny story, I wonder who was shocked more?
