A suspected burglar was arrested after being seen standing over two sleeping juveniles early Sunday.
The Norwalk Police Department responded to 1 Seitz Way at 5:18 a.m. for the report of an unwanted male suspect inside the residence.
"It was reported a white male had entered the residence and was standing over two juveniles sleeping in the family room. The male left prior to our arrival, but was last seen wearing a white shirt and tan pants," Officer Jared Ferris said in his report.
Police found the suspect, Kelly V. Still, 30, of 180 Whittlesey Ave., and arrested him in the front yard of 13 Oakwood Drive, an area which intersects with Seitz Way. He was charged with burglary and transported to the Huron County Jail.
"He made no other comment than his name and he said he didn't steal anything," Capt. Mike Conney said.
The victim's granddaughter woke up to find Still standing over her and she asked him who he was, Conney said.
"He ignored that and walked into the dining room. That's when the family dog started barking (unusually)," he continued.
Conney said the wife was the first family member besides the granddaughter to encounter Still.
"She yelled for her husband ... who retrieved his firearm. He yelled down from the top of the stairwell he had a gun," Conney said.
Officer Timothy Skinner, who arrested and identified Still, reported the suspect appeared to be "highly intoxicated," but his report offers no further details. Conney said the victims also suspected the man was drunk.
"It seems from this report they don't have any idea who this guy was," Conney said.
If convicted of burglary, Still faces six to 18 months behind bars.
