A Guelph man came face to face with an uninvited guest in his home Monday night.
The Guelph Police Service was called to a home in the area of Huron Street and Ferguson Street.
Investigators say around 8 p.m. the homeowner was taking a bath when he heard a loud noise. He went downstairs to check it out and discovered a man in the living room carrying some of the homeowner’s possessions.
They say once he was confronted, the man apologized and left the house, leaving the items behind.
Investigators say also left behind were a pair of bolt cutters, a makeshift blade tool and a bag of personal items that included more tools, Halloween masks, clothing and rope.
