ST. PETERS, Mo. (KMOX) – A man is facing charges after allegedly breaking into a St. Charles County home naked.
Authorities have charged Joseph Michael Mahoney of Lake St. Louis with sexual misconduct, property damage and burglary.
A man who lives near St. Peters says he was awakened around 4:30 a.m. Wednesday by someone pounding on his bedroom door. Police say the unidentified man woke up, grabbed a shotgun and when he opened the door he was confronted by the naked 24-year-old.
The man kept Mahoney at bay until St. Charles County deputies arrived.
Lt. Craig McGuire says the deputies found the suspect sitting on the floor, mumbling incoherently and smelling of alcohol.
