CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio — A burglary suspect broke into a home Thursday morning, then took a nap in the homeowner’s bed, Cuyahoga Falls police said.

It happened at approximately 4 a.m. at a home in the 3100 block of Peninsula Road.

A homeowner told police that he was sleeping when he was woken up by loud, banging sounds. That’s when he went downstairs and found a man breaking in through his kitchen door.

The homeowner ran outside in his front yard and called police. Once officers arrived, they went inside and found 22-year-old Jacob S. Parker, of Akron, sleeping in the homeowner’s bed.

But there was trouble when they tried to wake up the intruder, as he fought with officers and ended up getting tasered, according to police.

Also found on the homeowner’s property was Parker’s car with the door wide open and his girlfriend’s purse and keys inside.

Concerned about the girlfriend’s whereabouts, officers did a welfare check on her. They found her in her apartment, unresponsive and “extremely intoxicated,” a police report stated.

She finally came to as she was being checked out by Cuyahoga Falls EMS.

Parker was charged with burglary and resisting arrest.
