Coraopolis police: Woman charged after breaking into her home and falling asleep on a couch
Coraopolis police have charged a woman after they say she broke into a house and slept on a sofa.
Early Sunday morning, Tenesha Fisher tells Channel 11 she fell asleep watching TV in her living room, but when she woke up she found she was not alone.
“I look up and there really is a little white girl lying on my couch,” Fisher said.
Fisher captured a photo of the intruder sleeping a few feet away on his clean linen and wrapped in his aunt’s funeral blanket.
Fisher immediately called the police.
“I brought them in, and they were just ‘um’ and I was like, ‘I know,'” Fisher said.
Coraopolis police identified the woman as an intoxicated Kelly Bridger. Bridger told police her grandmother once lived in Fisher’s home.
“You know, this isn’t the Grammy’s house and there’s a tall black woman sleeping, right here by herself,” Fisher said.
Fisher believes his front door was unlocked, which likely gave Bridger the opportunity to enter.
“Sometimes when you slam it, it doesn’t go all the way,” Fisher said.
Fisher tells Channel 11 that to make matters worse, Bridger took to social media to shed some light on what was a scary situation for her and her daughter, who was at home at the time of the incident.
“She gives the impression that everything is fine because her grandmother lived here. You don’t walk into people’s houses,” Fisher said.
“She could have come in violently, she could have come in swinging. She could have come in with a knife.
Bridger was charged with criminal trespass.
