Rather than escape, home intruder finds lure of a soft couch simply irresistible


A 22-year-old UW-River Falls student allegedly broke into a house in the 500 block of East Cedar Street before 2 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 17. He wore no coat or shoes, and allegedly had left the furnishing of the living room in disarray before being confronted by the occupant. The young man allegedly could only give his first name, "David." Ordered to leave the house, the man started to do so, but then plopped on the couch and tried to curl up.
