Watercooler talk
GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) — Authorities said a naked intruder startled a woman in her home west of Denver, then fled in a sheet to another home where he was discovered wearing women’s clothing. Jefferson County deputies said the first break-in occurred shortly before 7 a.m. Monday. The man fled when the woman screamed.

Deputies said he entered a nearby home through an unlocked door, where the female owner discovered him in a bathroom wearing women’s underwear, a nightgown, stockings and a scarf.

He was arrested in the front yard by deputies alerted by a call from the first home.

Clinton S. March, 24, was arrested on burglary, indecent exposure and theft charges.
