PISA, Italy, Sept. 15 (UPI) -- Police in Italy said a husband who reported a burglar in his home had actually discovered his wife's secret lover.

Investigators said the Pisa man called police when he discovered a man in his bedroom while he was in bed with his wife and officers arrived in time to chase the man down.


However, once the "burglar" was apprehended, police discovered the man was not an attempted thief, but rather the secret lover of the homeowner's wife. The man had intended to surprise the woman with a late-night visit and fled when he discovered the woman's husband was home.

Police said the revelation led to a physical altercation between the two men and officers had to pull them apart.

It was unclear whether any charges resulted from the incident.
