A feline-loving man got arrested in St. Petersburg on Wednesday after he broke into a woman's house and stopped to pet her cat.
On Nov. 20 the victim woke up to Jasper Fioroenza, 24, standing at the foot of her bed. When she screamed for him to get out of the house he instead bent down to pet her cat, the Tampa Bay Times reported.
St. Petersburg police said that Firoenza did not harm the woman and fled the house. He was later caught when detectives found a fingerprint he left on the woman's bedroom door frame, according to WFLA.
Undercover detectives followed Firoenza on Wednesday and saw him break into the woman's house again. They told WFLA that he "must have been drunk."
Firoenza faces charges of burglary of an occupied dwelling and resisting arrest without violence. He was taken to Pinellas County Jail and is being held on a $20,500 bail, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
