Drunken intruder breaks into Rochester home

A Rochester homeowner discovered broken glass and blood on the walls of the home Sunday morning after a drunken intruder broke into the house.

The homeowner who lives in the 1500 block of 13th Avenue Northwest called police to report a glass door into his home had been broken and blood inside the home, according to Rochester Police Lt. Casey Moilanen. When authorities arrived, there was no intruder but a wallet was found in the home. Police found a driver's license belonged to a 32-year-old Rochester man who was getting treatment at Saint Marys Hospital for deep cuts on his arm.

Police interviewed the man who told them he had been drunk the night before and thought he was breaking into his girlfriend's house, believing she had locked him out. He ended up calling a friend to take him to the hospital after injuring himself during the break in.

Moilanen said the man will likely be charged with damage to property.
