Rockville Resident Finds Nearly Naked Stranger Asleep on Couch
Police said the incident occurred in the Twinbrook neighborhood and was apparently an isolated incident.
A Rockville man who went fishing earlier this month caught a surprise when he got home.
He found a man, wearing only a pair of white socks, asleep on his couch, Rockville City police said.
Police are investigating the incident, which occurred in the 12900 block of Ardennes Avenue in the city’s Twinbrook neighborhood.
When the resident returned home about 5:22 a.m. on Sept. 1, he knocked on a bedroom window to ask his wife, who was inside, to help him unload a fishing boat, said Maj. Michael W. England, commander of the Rockville City Police Department’s Special Operations Bureau.
When the resident entered the home he found the nearly naked man asleep on the couch, England said. The resident later told a police that the man was wearing only white socks.
The husband began yelling, which startled the man, England said. The man awoke, ran upstairs and into a bathroom and then downstairs and out of the back door of the home.
Police say the man entered the home sometime between 1 a.m. and the husband’s return later that same morning.
The wife “told the officer who [responded] she hadn’t seen anyone because it was dark,” England said.
Police first reported the incident as part of the department’s weekly crime blotter.
The man found on the couch is described as Asian, 20 years old, between 5 feet 5 inches and 5 feet 6 inches, weighing 120 to 130 pounds, with short black hair and a thin build.
“There is no indication whatsoever that this is more than an isolated incident at this time,” England said.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Rockville City Police Department at 240-314-8900.
