Vermont police charge unclothed man with burglary
PUTNEY, Vt. (AP) -- Vermont police say they've filed charges against a man who was found unclothed in another person's house.
State police were dispatched to a house in Putney at about 12:05 a.m. Sunday after receiving an alarm.
Upon arriving, police found signs of forced entry to a glass door leading inside. They then found a man who wasn't wearing clothes sitting on top of a bathroom sink in an apparent attempt to hide. In a release, authorities say the man was bleeding from numerous cuts over his body.
Police charged 52-year-old Fred Houghton, of Putney, with burglary and unlawful mischief. He's being held on $10,000 bail.
Houghton's scheduled to appear in court on Monday, but it's not known if he has a lawyer.
