Suspected drunken man enters wrong house, frightens family

Los Angeles police arrested an allegedly drunken man early Thursday after he broke a window and climbed into what he thought was a friend's home and frightened a woman and two children inside.

Officers said they were summoned by the woman to the 2100 block of Mansfield Avenue in the Mid-City area about 2 a.m.

The suspect, who was in his mid- to late-20s, answered the front the door of the house when police arrived, said Lt. Darius Bone of the Wilshire Division. He was arrested on suspicion of trespassing.

“The guy was drunk and thought he was getting into a friend's house,” Bone said.

The suspect's name was not available Thursday morning.
