Man Wakes Up In Bed With Alleged Burglar

March 18th, 2010 by

PITTSBURGH — Police say a man broke into a Pittsburgh home and climbed into bed with its owner, apparently because he was drunk and cold following a rap concert.
Homeowner Frank Fontana says he was in bed when the man climbed in about 5:30 Wednesday morning. Fontana says he asked whether it was a woman who has keys to his home — and he grabbed a baseball bat when a deep male voice answered, “No, it’s not.”
Police say Fontana kept the man at bay until police arrived but didn’t hit him with the bat.
Police say the intruder told them he was looking for shelter after a Tuesday night concert by rapper Jay-Z at the Mellon Arena.
The 33-year-old man faces a preliminary hearing on charges of criminal mischief and criminal trespass.
