    Odd breaking/entering in VA

    Luckily the homeowner was not injured.

    FREDERICKSBURG, Va. - A startling sight greeted a Fredericksburg woman when she returned home from picking up a newspaper early Thursday, police said. A man she didn't know was sitting on her toilet. The man had apparently entered her home in the 300 block of Germania Street by cutting a screen and unlocking the door, police said.

    City police spokeswoman Natatia Bledsoe said the incident occurred about 5:30 a.m. The resident, who is in her 80s, had left the home for a brief time to get a paper. On her way to get the paper, Bledsoe said, the woman saw the man hanging out on the street. She had never seen him before that.

    When she got home, she noticed that the bathroom door was closed. She opened the door and the man was sitting there.

    Bledsoe said the woman asked the man a couple of questions, including "How long are you going to be?" but didn't understand the man's response because it was in Spanish.

    She then told the man she was calling to police and he got up and left. The woman noticed the cut screen after the man was gone.

    Bledsoe said the bizarre incident is even more unnerving because it isn't clear if the man just wanted to use the bathroom or if he had a more sinister plan in mind.

    A police dog tried to track the man, but was unsuccessful.

    The intruder was described as a Hispanic male in his late 20s. He was wearing a black sleeveless shirt, dark pants and had a tattoo on one of his upper arms.

    Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call city police at 703-372-1055.

    Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.

    That would not be my first question. Somehow this seems [relatively] innocent to me. 5:30AM, no public bathroom, he sees the woman leave. He does not speak English so he could not knock on the door and ask to use the bathroom. That said, he is lucky he was not shot and even luckier that he wasn't caught.

    When you gotta go, you gotta go.

    I guess Pete is right, if only she understood Spanish!
