The resident, in the 5000 block of Clarkston Rd., said he was woken up by his doorbell ringing at around 3:40 a.m. to find a completely naked man standing on the front porch, trying to open the front door.

The man — who was caught on a home security camera — told the resident he was lost, before running away.

Deputies canvassed the area and discovered a neighboring, unoccupied home that had its front door broken in. An end table had been broken and a table lamp was found in the front lawn, according to investigators.
