Naked Man Found in Stranger's Bed

A man is in custody after police say he was found naked in a stranger's bed in Brockton, Massachusetts.

It allegedly began when the man tried to climb into a first floor window Wednesday afternoon.

"I was in my room watching TV, and there was a guy climbing on my window," said Arianna Soares. "He asked if somebody named Cheryl lived here, I told him no."

Soares says she'd never seen the man, later identified by police as Levy Laurent, and told him to leave.

"I was startled," said Soares. "I didn't know what to do. I almost screamed when I seen him in my window."

Soares thought he took off. But later on, her upstairs neighbor started shouting.

"They're coming downstairs talking about there's somebody naked in their bed," said Soares.

Laurent had somehow managed to get in through the front door of the triple decker.

Police say he was found in a teen's bed on the second floor and he was touching himself.

"I think it's terrible," said Soares. "You shouldn't be able to just walk into people's houses and think it's OK to lay in somebody's bed naked."

The 34-year-old suspect got dressed and walked away, according to investigators, but people in the home kept an eye on him as he wandered the neighborhood until police arrived and arrested him.

"Both my stepbrother and father-in-law followed him around until the police got to him," said Soares.

Laurent is from New York. Police say he has a history of this type of behavior.

The suspect faces charges of indecent exposure and breaking and entering.
