FORREST CITY, AR - Authorities say a would-be burglar's plot was foiled when he got stuck, naked, in the window of a house.

Police say the man was caught before he could take anything from an apartment he was allegedly trying to rob.

Police say 19-year-old Dennis Reed, Jr. was arrested Saturday when police found him stuck between an air conditioning unit and a window frame of the apartment.  Reed was nude when police found him.

Reed told police that he was forced at gunpoint to break into the apartment by a subject he only knew by his first name.

Officers and emergency personnel initially tried to free Reed, but were unsuccessful.  Reed was finally freed after the fire department's rescue squad personnel entered the apartment and removed the air conditioner.

Police say Reed was charged with residential burglary and taken to the St. Francis County jail.
