Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) -  A Rochester couple had a rude awakening Saturday night

The two were in bed sleeping when the woman woke up to find a strange man “standing over her bed.”

The woman thought the man kept repeating “kitty.” The man apparently realized he was in the wrong house and left. The couple saw him drive off and called 911. 

Responding officers spotted the man drive by a short while later and made a traffic stop.

The man was intoxicated and a breath test showed his blood/alcohol concentration was .23. Arrested was 33-year-old Jace Sanders of Owatonna. He told officers he was trying to find “Katy’s” house, a woman he said he knows who lives in the same area.

The incident happened in the 900 block of 19th St SE near Franklin school.

The man apparently got into the house through an unlocked rear door.
