Norfolk OPP responded to a 9-1-1 emergency call for a break and enter in progress on Concession 13, Townsend early Tuesday morning.
A naked individual forcibly gained entry into the residence ultimately waking the occupants. Once inside, he was confronted by the homeowners and then fled from the area on foot.
Officers arrived on scene and began to search the immediate area. A second call was placed to the OPP by a homeowner after the same person attempted to enter their residence on Highway 24.
Officers located the man and took him into custody without incident.
Police have charged 35-year-old Herman Teichroeb of Norfolk County with: Break and enter; Mischief – destroys or damages property; Trespassing at night (3 counts)
The accused is scheduled to appear in the Ontario Court of Justice in Simcoe at a later date.
