A Fremont man returned home to find a stranger inside his house.  It happened around 2pm this past Wednesday (8/25) in the 200 block of N. 45th Street.  As the man came into the home, a woman came down the stairs with bags and purses.  The woman told him she knew his wife and was supposed to be there, but couldn’t remember the name of his wife.  As the man started to call police, the woman begged the man not to turn her in.  She started taking stolen items out of the bags and purses and offered several apologies.  She then asked the man for food.  He gave her $5 and asked her to leave.

After she left the home, the man called police and gave them a description.  Officers thought it might be a woman they were familiar with.  They later found her at a bus stop at 46th and Phinney.  The homeowner identified the woman and police arrested her.
