A man was shocked when he found a naked stranger in his bath when he got home.
Police were called to the address in Stoke-on-Trent after the man walked into his bathroom and saw the other man naked in the bath, the Metro reported.
However, as soon as the police arrived, the naked man fled the property but a 36-year-old man was arrested in suspicion of burglary but was later released without charge.
The police said the homeowner also reported that man had made himself a drink and was drinking it while in the bath.
Chief Inspector Karen Stevenson said: ''This was a highly unusual episode and not one we see every day.
''I'd like to reassure local residents that this was a completely isolated incident and there's no reason to be alarmed.''
