JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A Jonesboro woman got a rude awakening Sunday when she found a strange man asleep in her bed.

Shortly before 5:30 a.m. Officer Karen Rinehart responded to a call in the 200-block of Richmond.

Rinehart said the victim, a 31-year-old woman, “appeared very frightened.”

The woman told Rinehart she had awakened to find a man sleeping in bed with her.

The victim said “she had never seen the man before and did not know why he was in bed with her,” Rinehart stated.

The woman told the officer she was “very tired and must have forgotten to lock the door.”

Inside the apartment, Rinehart found Scottie Robinson, 33, of Jonesboro asleep in the victim’s bed.

When Rinehart woke up Robinson, he reportedly thought he was sleeping at “his friend’s house on Race Street.”

Robinson said he and his friends had been to a downtown bar the night before and, “because he had so much to drink, he had taken a taxi to his friend’s house.”

He could not remember how he had gotten into the bed, the report stated.

Rinehart arrested Robinson and took him to the Craighead County Detention Center on a charge of criminal trespass.
