Although the drunk man had no recollection of how he sustained his injuries, police say his cuts and bruises are consistent with those incurred when a "highly intoxicated" individual falls down in a wooded area.

MARLBOROUGH, Mass., Aug. 19 (UPI) -- A Massachusetts man awoke to a rude surprise Tuesday morning, when he found a bloody stranger drunkenly sleeping in his family's living room.

Around 4:30 a.m., the unidentified Marlborough homeowner woke up to discover 30-year-old Timothy Francis Benway passed out and covered in his own blood on a couch. The homeowner and Benway had never met prior.

The father of two rounded up his children, wife and father-in-law and removed them from the house before contacting police.

Police arrested Benway and determined he broke into the house through an attached apartment where the father-in-law was living.

Although Benway had no recollection of how he sustained his injuries, arresting officer Peter Richardson described the cuts and bruises as consistent those incurred when a "highly intoxicated" individual falls down in a wooded area.

Benway is charged with vandalism for bleeding on the couch, entering a building at nighttime and putting a person in fear.
