A California man was arrested after allegedly breaking into a family’s home, changing into lingerie, and prowling through a Sacramento suburb in nothing but a bra and panties.
Shaun McGuire was charged with indecent exposure, trespassing, burglary, loitering, and violating his parole in the bizarre Saturday incident, police said.
“Last night a resident woke to find a man in his home, in only a bra and panties,” stated the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office. “The suspect fled, jumped fences and ran through several backyards.”
Homeowner Matthew Eschrich woke up around 2 a.m. on Oct. 12 after he heard his 5-month old baby fussing and stumbled through the darkness to make a bottle for the child when he noticed his auto-sensor hallway lights had been triggered.
He thought maybe it was his sister-in-law, who sometimes worked late shifts at In-N-Out Burger. But Eschrich told Oxygen.com that when he proceeded down the hallway he heard “a lot of scuffling and commotion.” Then a door slammed and he heard “shuffling” coming from his garage. Eschrich bolted upstairs to tell his wife someone had broken into their home and to call 911.
At that moment, his sister-in-law arrived at their home and witnessed the night-crawling bandit’s dramatic exit.
“She calls me and says, ‘Oh my god there’s somebody outside who just ran through your garage and he’s wearing nothing but a bra and panties,’” Eschrich recounted.
Eschrich’s sister-in-law described the suspect as “trim” and a “pretty big guy.” She said she could see the man crouching behind a neighbor’s bushes, and observed said he was still “peeking” into the house.
Authorities responded, set up a perimeter, and deployed police dogs. Hours later, law enforcement said they arrested “now naked” McGuire nearby.
“No doubt he must have been cold,” said Eschrich, who noted the temperature was in the mid-40s that morning.
Eschrich believes the man changed into the lingerie in his home. He said the bra and panties the suspect was allegedly wearing didn’t belong to him or his wife. Police, too, were unable to confirm where the lingerie came from.
“I’ll never forget that sight,” Eshcrich described. “It was certainly something you hear about you read about, you don’t think it’s something that’s going to happen to you until it does. The whole premise of somebody in my house in my bathroom changing into lingerie — it’s extremely unnerving as you could imagine.”
