Irishman arrested after Sydney couple awoke to find him naked in their bed

The 25-year-old will be interviewed by police when released from hospital.

A COUPLE IN Sydney, Australia awoke to find a naked Irishman in their bed this morning.

At around 1.45am, a woman awoke in her Sackville Street home to find the unknown man in bed with her and her partner.

The woman got out of bed and awoke her partner who challenged the man.

In a statement police report that:

After getting out of bed the intruder, who was naked, picked up his clothes and walked to the rear of the premises.

“The woman contacted police while her partner tried to shut the intruder in the rear yard of the home.

“The man climbed in through a kitchen window and wandered around the home until the arrival of police who arrested him.”

New South Wales police say officers from Eastern Beaches Local Area Command placed the man in the back of the police vehicle where he began to convulse.

Ambulance Paramedics were called to treat him for possible drug related health issues.

He was conveyed to Prince of Wales Hospital by Ambulance Paramedics with a police escort.

The man will undergo medical and mental health checks.

The 25-year-old will be interviewed by police when released from hospital.
