Modesto police arrested a man on Monday after he was caught by security officers taking a shower in the house he allegedly broke into.
The officers responded to a home on the 300 block of El Rio Avenue after a security alarm was set off. Police said the officers found Jose Cruz, 21, fully clothed in the shower trying to wash blood from a cut he suffered breaking a window to gain access to the home.
Cruz then tried to hold the door closed, but the officers were able to get into the bathroom, wrestle Cruz to the ground and arrest him.
Police said Cruz was booked into jail on suspicion of burglary.
