SEATTLE (CBS Seattle) – When a Seattle man found a drunk man rummaging through his parents bedroom last week, he did what many of us would not do…gave him a glass of water.
KOMO-TV reports the victim was home alone at his parents’s house when he heard noises coming from the bedroom.
He investigated and found a man opening drawers and throwing things onto the floor.
The victim told police the rummager seemed intoxicated and confused so he offered the man a chair and got him a glass of water.
After caling 911, he then sat with the man until police arrived.
A medical technician on the scene examined the suspected robber for signs of a drug overdose.
The suspect had a strong smell of alcohol and had three bottles of pills in his pocket, according to police records. He was also having trouble keeping his balance.
The suspect was taken to a hospital before being booked on burglary charges.
