The young woman woke confused, and said she didn’t remember entering the home. It appeared that she came in through a kitchen window, Russo said.

The kitchen was messy, with food strewn about, Russo said.

The woman was arrested for trespassing and bailed out over the weekend. She is to be arraigned later this week. The homeowner is not pressing any charges, Russo said.
