Kitsap County prosecutors are reviewing a Sunday morning incident in East Bremerton involving a drunken 21-year-old man who walked into the wrong apartment and climbed into bed with an 80-year-old woman.
Kitsap County sheriff’s deputies were called to the apartment on Vineyard Lane, east of Kitsap County Fairgrounds, about 6:30 a.m. Sunday by the woman’s 56-year-old son, who had been sleeping in another bedroom, according to reports. He was awakened by the sound of someone urinating on the floor of the apartment. As he was getting up to investigate, he heard someone go into his mother’s room, and she began to scream.
The woman told deputies she was extremely frightened when the strange man climbed into bed with her. Between screams, she asked what he was doing. “Passing out,” he told her, and went to sleep.
Her son reportedly rushed his mother out of the bedroom and waited for deputies to arrive. She later told officers that she could not remember whether she had locked the door to the apartment.
Deputies muscled the 21-year-old out of bed and into handcuffs. The man, a resident of the Bangor submarine base, later became apologetic and explained that he had been drinking and playing video games with friends in a nearby apartment unit. He said he left for a short time. When he came back, he walked into the wrong apartment.
The man said he had no recollection of urinating on the floor and would pay for any damages.
The case was referred to the Kitsap County Prosecutor’s Office for possible criminal charges.
