A woman who returned to her home found a man inside who was frying bacon on her stove and in possession of several personal items, according to police in suburban St. Louis.

Damon Petty, 36, was charged with burglary after his arrest Tuesday at the home of Kenya Ealy in University City.

Ealy and a female friend had returned to the home and at first were unable to enter when Petty tried to keep the door closed, according to stltoday.com.

The two eventually got in and detained him until police arrived.
