A Dartmouth woman was surprised Friday to find a stranger having a shower in her home.
The Pine Hill Road resident called police after she discovered the man around 5:30 p.m.
The intruder tried to make a clean getaway, but was found by officers a short distance away.
The man is being held in custody awaiting a court date Monday. He's charged with being unlawfully in a dwelling and breaching both a recognizance order and an undertaking.
