A Florida man was reportedly caught naked in someone else's home and is now facing a trespassing charge.

A 13-year-old girl who lives in the house in Spring Hill, Florida, was woken up by the sound of someone in her bathroom on March 13. Because her siblings were asleep and she feared walking past the bathroom door to her mother’s room. The girl escaped out of her bedroom window and ran into a neighbor’s house to call for help.

When a police officer arrived, he and Sandra Gilbertson, the teen’s mother, opened the door to the bathroom and found 35-year-old Joshua Lee Noble naked in the bathtub with the shower running. He was screaming for his “babe,” according to the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office.

“The mother took a look at him and said, I have no idea who that is, and I didn’t give him permission to be in here,” said spokeswoman for the sheriff’s office, Denise Moloney.

Noble had bloodshot eyes and smelled of alcohol when the deputy found him at 3:40 a.m. He told the officer the last thing he remembered was leaving a bar with his wife, according to WTVT.

“Upon talking to him, he told the deputies that he had been at some type of a drinking establishment with his wife, they were walking home, and they became involved in an argument and got separated. He said he thought he was in his own home,” said Moloney.

Authorities say there were no signs of forced entry and they do not know how the trespasser got in, according to WFLA.

May have gotten into the home through the garage door and back door, which was left unlocked by Gilbertson.
