A Salisbury man got quite a surprise when he stepped out of the shower Thursday morning to find a stranger standing in his bedroom.
According to the police report it happened just before 9:00 am at a house in the 1300 block of Statesville Boulevard. Officers say it appears that a would be burglar had gone into the house thinking no one was home.
The homeowner stepped out of the shower and started towards the bedroom when he discovered the apparently startled stranger, who slammed the bedroom door then jumped from a window.
The man was described in the police report as a "black male wearing jeans and a white tee shirt."
A witness said the prowler got into an older model black Chevrolet Cavalier with faded paint on the hood and drove away.
Anyone with any additional information is asked to contact Salisbury-Rowan Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245.
