James King made his way into the Hackensack home through an open window and frightened a woman when she realized a stranger was in the bathroom, ready to strip off his clothes and climb into the shower with her, NBC reported.
The woman quickly ran into the bedroom and called the police, who found King washing the dishes and claiming he was the family’s caretaker.
The woman who was in the shower initially thought her sister Mikah Diaz had entered the bathroom on Wednesday morning.
She quickly grabbed a towel, bolted out of the bathroom and locked herself in a bedroom where Diaz was watching her baby nephew.
‘She was having a hard time breathing. I think she was shocked. She locked the door and collapsed onto the floor,’ Diaz told CBS.
