From Cairo Police:
May 10th, 2018
Four Cairo kids did a great job after a naked stranger entered and remained in their residence.
Per Sgt Busch...
" Fortunately we were able to respond quickly and secure the scene, this incident could have quickly turned into a much worse situation, the entire incident was handled with nobody getting hurt.
We are still investigating a mental health aspect to this so we cannot release names at this time. The fact that Police arrived first was key to preventing a much worse outcome. I am proud of the Officers actions at the scene.
The kids were terrified and still managed to call 911 and provide information to the trained dispatchers. A Sheriffs Deputy raced to the scene to assist Cairo Police and I saw the Deputy hand a stuffed animal to a child before he cleared. It is a good feeling when we arrive and realize that kids were desperately counting us to get there fast, and we did not let them down.
We also understand that any parent would be emotional when they get word that a naked stranger entered their house with their kids. Good job to the Cairo Officers, the Greene County Sheriffs Deputy, the 911 dispatchers, and the kids"
At about 4 PM Cairo Police responded to a 911 call reporting a naked man in a residence. Police arrived to a little boy yelling for the Police. Cairo Police discovered a naked man in the residence who was a stranger to the four kids between the ages of 7 and 13 years old. Other kids had locked themselves in a back bedroom after calling 911.
The suspect was discovered to be holding stolen items in his hands from another building on the road. The suspect was not known to any of the residents.
Cairo Police charged the suspect, a Greenville man, with Felony Burglary, criminal trespass 2nd degree, exposure of person, 3 counts of petit larceny, and 4 counts of endangering the welfare of a child.Police are still investigating the incident, no further information released at this time.
