Stripping Burglar Caught in Jefferson City

Any burglary is scary, but one Jefferson City Police just told us about was especially shocking.

Captain Doug Shoemaker says a man entered an apartment on Ventura Avenue Thursday night, and went to the bedroom of the female resident.

“[He] then began to undress in the apartment in front of the apartment owner. She confronted him, produced a knife, he left the residence and fled on foot.” says Shoemaker.

Officers got a good description of the man from the victim, and they caught up with 36-year-old Antwain Stewart at an apartment about a block away. Shoemaker says Stewart had been staying there occasionally, and has no apparent relationship to the victim.

Stewart is charged with first-degree burglary, and is being held in the Cole County Jail on a $150,000 bond.
