CHICAGO, Jan. 27 (UPI) -- A naked 26-year-old man trashed the home of a Chicago couple in their 60s while they were away at a weekend concert, police said.

Police responded to calls from neighbors around 9 p.m. Saturday and said they found the front door of the Northwest Side home "broken in half," the Chicago Tribune reported.

They found Johnathon Kretz "completely naked on the second floor throwing the ... furniture all over the residence, causing serious damage to multiple walls, window and furniture," the police report said. Kretz also allegedly was "throwing glass and other miscellaneous items out the broken front windows toward the officers."

The Tribune said Kretz was taken to Saints Mary and Elizabeth Medical Center for observation.

"It was incredible," Judith Sandstrom, 69, said after getting home. "It was a long night."

"We found underpants that don't belong to me and socks that don't belong to me," her husband Peter Kohn, 67, told the newspaper. "My wife just saw a shoe she doesn't recognize."

Kretz has been charged with residential burglary, criminal damage to property and aggravated assault on a police officer and was being held on $100,000 bail, the newspaper said.
