An Indiana man allegedly breaks into a neighbor's apartment and proceeds to cook a meal, fold laundry and do some vacuuming before the resident, and then police arrived. WNDU's Brandon Lewis reports.
When a South Bend, Ind. mother returned home Monday night with her son, she discovered Keith Davis, 46, had neatly folded her clothes, swept the floor and cooked dinner. The problem? Davis was a burglar.
"I seen my living room light on and the bedroom light on, so once we came up the stairs I figured my brother was home," Ashley Murray told WNDU. "I turned the knob and it was locked, so I seen my screen open and I pushed my window open and it was some random guy in my kitchen."
Murray told the station she walked away from the window with her son and called the police before yelling at Davis to leave her home.
"I'm like, 'The police are on their way!' And he told me, 'The police already been here,' closed my window, locked it back up and closed my door and sat in a chair in front of the window until the police came," Murray said.
Murray told WNDU she noticed Davis had cooked some chicken and onions in a pan, folded her clothes and swept the floor. She told WSBT Davis even put a sheet and pillow on her couch.
"The police said it looked like he was a good chef. It looked like he had broth and everything in it," she said.
Davis was arrested despite adamantly stating he was in his own home. He was charged with breaking and entering.
According to WNDU, the man told police he had woken up in the apartment, and a woman told him to get a set of keys from a closet. Murray said Davis had a set of her keys in his pocket when he was arrested and suspects Davis had been watching her and saw when she placed a set of keys in a storage unit for her brother to use when he arrived later that night from Indianapolis.
'He really seemed to think this was his home'
When officers asked Davis where he lived he gave officers an address that didn't exist. According to the affidavit, officers had a difficult time understanding his speech.
"Me and the police think he was on some type of drug. He really seemed to think this was his home," Murray told WNDU.
Murray said her son later recognized Davis as a neighbor from across the complex. The son said he had seen Davis watching him and his friends when they played outside.
Davis didn't steal anything beyond the food.
"He drunk up my orange juice, but it's cool because he swept up my floor and folded my clothes," Murray told WNDU.
Prosecutors requested a $5,000 bond because Murray was concerned Davis might return, but the judge lowered it to $1,000. The prosecutor is requesting Davis undergo a psychological evaluation.
