Johnstown police recently responded to an incident involving a homeowner who unknowingly had a man sleep at the residence overnight.

A man showed up at the door to thank a West Coshocton Street resident for letting him sleep at the residence the night before, according to a report received at 11:49 a.m. July 2. The resident said she didn't know the man had slept there and noticed a door was broken.

The resident said she was unaware of what the man was talking about until her husband checked the front door and noticed the lock was broken on the screen and the main door chain had been broken.

After noticing the door, the couple realized it was the man and not their daughter who had eaten food and left the kitchen a mess. They said they believed the man was telling the truth, but they wanted him to know he wasn't invited and he isn't welcome to return.

The residents said they didn't want to press charges but wanted to prevent recurrence.

Police spoke to the man, who was visiting a nearby residence. He said he knows he has a problem, and he's trying to control it, the report said.
